The Pro Tour (formerly the Pro Circuit) is a series of professional tennis events that act as a bridge between junior events and the ATP/WTA Tour. These events provide an opportunity for players to earn their first world ranking points.
Pro Tour events are staged predominantly in regional areas across seven states and territories of Australia. Tennis Australia’s priority is to grow the number of Pro Tour events over the next three to five years with a focus on engaging local communities through promotional activities.
