Our AO Stories

The people who join us to deliver the Australian Open are the key to its success. They come from all walks of life and are dedicated to providing an outstanding experience for our patrons, players and team.

Find out more about them, and their role at the AO below.


Meet the Australian Open Retail team. They’re a diverse bunch and believe that’s what makes them a great team!

Tahlia joined our Australian Open Customer Experience team at AO23 through our partnership with Anglicare Victoria, and has loved being part of the AO experience.

Lisa has been part of the team for 40 years! While she’s a physio she loves being a part of the AO Hospitality team; it’s her time to relax and have something different from her ‘normal work’. See what’s kept Lisa coming back year after year.  

We believe our team needs to reflect the community we serve. Through the Victorian All Abilities team, Daniel joined Court Services, playing a vital role and developing new skills and confidence.

Tood Woodbridge (not the tennis player) started as a Ballkid before joining Court Services, and is now a fulltime member of the Tennis Australia team.

Kayla is in the Tennis Australia Participation team, and started her career at Tennis at the Australian Open as a Ballkid Supervisor.
