Melbourne Park, 9 December 2011 |

Don’t miss your chance to watch the stars of the AFL, Rugby Union, NRL, Netball, Cricket, Basketball and more battle it out to find who is the ultimate on-court champion in the Battle of the Codes.

The free event will feature doubles pairings from 16 different Melbourne sporting clubs and associations who will swap their football, bat, basketball, netball or surfboard for a tennis racquet as part of a new showcase at Melbourne Park.

Starting at 1 pm on Saturday 10 December the tournament will see the players battle it out in a round-robin format followed by a finals series with John Fitzgerald and Peter Luczak overseeing the event as co-tournament directors.
