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!
The event is held at Kooyong just east of the Melbourne CBD. The venue used to host the #AusOpen until it moved to Melbourne Park, but it still affectionately referred to as the ‘Spiritual home of the Australian Open’.
Unlike other events, the Priceline Kooyong Classic is a round robin tournament with 2016 the first time it will feature 12 of the world’s best and upcoming players.
Including Giles Simon, Feliciano Lopez, Nicolas Almagro, Pablo Carreno Busta, David Goffin, Marcos Baghdatis and youngsters, Nick Kyrigos, Kyle Edmund, Alex Zverev, Hyeon Chung, and #OmarGosh! Aussie young gun Omar Jasika.
The venue is fairly intimate so you can get up close and personal to your fav’s and take one too many selfies (like we did last year).
There are a range of tickets available (Click here to see your options). Tuesday the 12th of Jan is Kids Day and there is free entry for kids under 16 (offer valid for two children for every adult ticket purchased). This year there is also free entry each day from 3pm so you can get a taste of all the excitement of Kooyong (including the totally awesome offerings at new and improved Kooyong Common).
Now here’s the exciting news… The awesome folk at Priceline Pharmacy Kooyong Classic have given us x4 double passes to give away for Tuesday the 12th or Wednesday the 13th of January, pretty exciting huh?
We have 2 double tickets up for grabs on Twitter and another 2 on Instagram. This competition is only open to those in Melbourne who are available to attend on either the 12th or 13th of Jan (apologies to all our interstate and international followers).
Entries close at 9pm AEST Melbourne time this Thursday the 7th of Jan and the most creative entry will be chosen by us.
