Hello Everybody Guys,
The Aussie Summer of Tennis has officially started (Woohoo!)
Like us, the team at Kooyong have been working hard to get everything primed and ready for Aussie tennis nuts and The Priceline Pharmacy Kooyong Classic is the perfect warm up event ahead of the Aus Open.
We had a great time last year getting up close and personal to players at the relaxed event (Giles we’re looking at you!) and this year it is set to get better with a revamped Kooyong Common.
Kooyong Common will form the centre of the Kooyong lawns with some of Melbourne’s best food trucks joining in the fun, including Soul Kitchen Pizza, Sliders on Tyres, White Guy Cooks Thai, Crepes n Coffee and Nandos (Anyone else just get hungry?).
And for those of you who enjoy an adult style beverage there will also be Pimms and Champagne tents to keep you, um… hydrated?
The lawned area adjacent to centre court will also feature a lawn bowls rink, a big screen so us tennis nuts can keep an eye on the on-court action, live music every evening and an exciting array of sponsor marquees and activations. Including a pamper station hosted by Priceline Pharmacy, where you can select from a range of treatments, like a relaxing pedi or mani (Feli, we see you!).
So, what’s the best part of the Kooyong Common? well, after 3pm entry is free!
How cool is that? Not only can you eat some pretty yummy food but you can also watch the likes of Nick Kyrgios, Felciano Lopez and Giles Simon as they prepare for the Australian Open. We are also looking forward to seeing some of the new guys of tour like Hyeon Chung who has shown the world what he can do by taking out Sam Groth last week at the Brisbane International, or Alex Zverev who just represented Germany at the 2016 Hopman Cup, and we must not forget local talent Omar Jasika (who we got to catch up with in last month and can tell you that he is someone you are going to want to watch).
We hope to see you there (you can purchase your tickets here if you haven’t already)- A few people we know will be there are the winners of our giveaway- Congrats to each of you, we hope you have a #Happy time! Once again thanks to Kooyong Classic make this possible.
And everybody guys don’t forget to follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, Periscope, Tumblr and Facebook to make sure you don’t miss out on any the action (we apologise in advance for the Spam- we can get a little excited).
Happy Slam Tennis
