Melbourne VIC, Australia, 2 September 2016 |

The Newcombe Medal, Australian Tennis Awards celebrate and recognise the performances, achievements and contributions made by outstanding members of the tennis family each year.

In 2016 a new nomination process for the Newcombe Medal, Australian Tennis Awards has been introduced.

From 2016 onwards, nominations will not be accepted directly for these awards – instead, nominees must enter the running for their relevant Member Association awards and the winners of each state and territory award category will become finalists for the Newcombe Medal, Australian Tennis Awards.

This process is designed to encourage the top candidates in each state and territory to put themselves forward for their Member Association awards, and will ensure representatives from across the national tennis community are recognised as Newcombe Medal award winners.

If you have been unable to nominate for your state/territory award ahead of the deadline please contact Tennis Australia regarding your eligibility for a wildcard nomination – 1800 PLAY TENNIS or [email protected].

To be eligible for the 2016 Newcombe Medal, Australian Tennis Awards we encourage all members of the tennis community to nominate for their local state or territory awards. Please visit your Member Association website to find out how to nominate yourself or someone you know in 2016.

The 2016 Newcombe Medal, Australian Tennis Awards will be held at Crown Palladium in Melbourne on Monday 28 November.

Tennis Australia is pleased to offer guests attending the Newcombe Medal, Australian Tennis Awards special accommodation rates at Crown Towers, Crown Promenade and Crown Metropol hotels. Online booking requests can be made via from Monday 3 October 2016 to Sunday 13 November 2016.  Rooms will be available subject to availability from Monday 14 November 2016 onwards.
