Paris, March 27 (AFP) Organisers on Friday announced the postponement of the women''s Evian Championships, put back because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Originally scheduled for July 23-26, the championship, held in Evian-les-Bains, France, has been switched to August 6-9.

The organisers of the Evian, a US and European Tour event, said they had been approached by the US tour about rescheduling.
