Australian Open Pacific Pathway

AOPP is a primary school tennis development program sponsored by the Australian Open through Tennis Australia’s membership of the Oceania Tennis Federation.

The AOPP is in its fifth year. The 2019/20 contribution will see the total funding reach well over $250,000.

Working together within the region, Tennis Australia and the ITF, along with the Pacific Nations, have had an enormous impact on the number of children enjoying tennis in Pacific Nations.
