Tennis NSW and Tennis Country are seeking expressions of interest to host the NSW Country Closed Championships from 2017 – 2019.

The Country Championships is an event that is steeped in history and considered to be the most prestigious Country Tennis event on the TNSW Calendar. Since the 1920s, the best country juniors and seniors have competed for the more than 30 perpetual trophies on offer. Previous champions include Tony Roche, Mark Edmondson, Jason Stoltenberg, Evonne Goolagong Cawley, Jan O’Neill and in more recent times, Nathan Healey and Ashley Fisher.

Each year the event attracts more than 800 participants and spectators to the week-long event. In the past, this tournament has been hosted at regional centres such as Newcastle, Gosford, Tuggerah, Wollongong and Forster.
