What are Free Tennis Days?
Free Tennis Days are about opening your club to your local community and encouraging people of all ages and abilities to pick up a racquet and have a hit.
256 towns around Australia will be aligned with a main draw player at Australian Open 2017 and by hosting a Free Tennis Day your town can go into the ballot to be one of them. If that player wins the Australian Open your club could win up to $5000!
