The International Tennis Federation (ITF) governing body has announced that the 2024 edition of its annual Hopman Cup mixed-gender national teams tournament has been canceled.

Tennium, the ITF’s event partner for the 2024 Hopman Cup, and the ITF itself announced the decision due to the proximity of the event’s date to the beginning of the Paris 2024 Olympic tennis tournament.

The 2024 Hopman Cup was scheduled to take place in Cote D’Azur, France, at the Nice Lawn Tennis Club, in a similar time frame to this year's Olympics in the French capital.

As the first edition of the competition to have taken place since 2019, the 2023 Hopman Cup was staged from July 19-23.

However, with the Paris 2024 edition of the Olympic tennis tournament set to run from July 27 to August 4, it was decided that the running of the two events would end up being too close together to be viable.

ITF president David Haggerty stated of the postponement decision: “With both the Hopman Cup and Olympic Games due to take place in France this year, hitting pause on the Hopman Cup until 2025 is a sensible decision. The players who had committed to this year’s event have been informed and we look forward to seeing them in the Cote d’Azur next year.”

Kristoff Puelinckx, founder and chief executive of the Barcelona-based Tennium, added: “We all agree that this is the right thing to do.”

The 2024 edition of the Hopman Cup was set to feature six nations, and from 2025 will feature eight. Future editions will continue to be staged in Cote d’Azur courtesy of the ITF’s contract to stage the event at the Nice Lawn Tennis Club through 2025.
