07/18/19 – Calendar Change for 2020 Top Seed Tennis Club/KHSAA State Tennis Championships

During the course of its first organizational meeting of the 2019-20 academic year on July 11 in Covington, the Board of Control addressed the calendar for the 2020 Top Seed Tennis Club/KHSAA State Tennis Championships.

After potential schedule conflicts were discovered following the scheduling of the USTA Southern Closed Tournament, the Board took action in order to accommodate participating student-athletes and prevent them from having to make a choice between participating in the Top Seed Tennis Club/KHSAA State Tennis Championships or the Southern Closed. With that goal in mind, the Board approved a recommendation to shift the state tennis dates for 2020 to June 1-3. 

“While we never like to change event dates, we clearly need to work closely with Kentucky USTA to minimize conflicts,” said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. “We will also be working with that group and its national counterparts to see if this conflict can be avoided in the future.”


The KHSAA staff routinely publishes blog posts to better communicate with its various constituencies and the public. For a list of those blogs, go to
