Melbourne, 24 May 2011 | By #AllezAussie and #ClayPlay

While tennis fans around Australia prepare for long nights watching French Open 2011 drama unfold from Sunday, Tennis Australia is giving away an iPad 2 in its #ClayPlay competition.

In celebration of the greatest claycourt event in the world and to cheer on the Aussies (#AllezAussie)over the coming fortnight all you have to do is show us all the things you can do with clay.

Other than play tennis on the stuff of course!

Whether it is your child’s vase they lovingly prepared for you in pottery class or the last mud mask you donned in the name of better skin, we want to see it, read about it and hear about it on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.

The competition opens today and will conclude following the men’s final at Roland Garros on 12 June. The most creative entry as judged by Tennis Australia’s digital team wins the iPad 2.
