Join us at the Priceline Pharmacy Kooyong Classic – It’s giveaway time!


Hello Everybodyguys,

Welcome to 2016, and to the start of the Aussie Summer of Tennis!

We’re working hard behind the scenes to bring as you as much Aussie tennis action as we can over the next few weeks. There are few dates on the Aussie calendar and we will be kicking off our tournament experiences with the Priceline Pharmacy Kooyong Classic from the 12th of Jan 2016.

The Kooyong Classic was one of our big highlights last year, so we thought we would tell you a little bit more about the event, and maybe, just maybe, we might give you the chance to join us at the event. Can you smell a giveaway coming? Keep reading!
