The COVID-19 situation is spiraling out of control around the world.   IWWF’s position is the creation and maintenance of a safe environment for the community, athletes, officials and volunteers.    At this juncture, the IWWF is unable to fulfil this goal at the upcoming IWWF World Water Ski Show Tournament.

The IWWF regrets to announce the cancellation of the 2020 IWWF World Water Ski Show Tournament.  This decision has not been taken lightly and the IWWF feels for the athletes who have already travelled to Australia.
