Launched in September 2022, Brighter Days provides relief from challenging life circumstances for young people and their families through fun, engaging tennis and social activities at flagship tennis facilities across Australia.
Over the last two years we have partnered with Children’s Cancer Foundation, Little Dreamers, the Sony Foundation and My Room nationwide to offer more than 280 children and families the opportunity to play and connect.
Brighter Days at Australian Open
Our Brighter Days program extends into the Summer of Tennis and the Australian Open Brighter Days at Australian Open provides families from our partner charities the chance to come and enjoy the festival of tennis at the Australian Open or one of the lead-in events in their closest city.
At the heart of Brighter Days is the intent to use tennis as a vehicle to create fun and meaningful memories for kids and families as they navigate extraordinary life challenges.
Here from charities we've partnered with to deliver our Brighter Days initiative.
