The prestigious Kooyong Classic will return bigger and better than ever in 2023.From 2023 the famous event will be known as the CareA2+ Kooyong Classic.
The CareA2+ Kooyong Classic will be held at the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club from Tuesday, January 10 to Thursday, January 12, 2023.
CareA2+ Kooyong Classic Tournament Director, Peter Johnston, said the new partnerships ensured a successful return in 2023 and an exciting future for an event that has a track-record of luring champions of tennis, with its reputation as an ideal preparation for the Australian Open.
The 2023 CareA2+ Kooyong Classic will be the first to be held at the revamped Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club after a recently completed $18 million redevelopment, which has returned the historically important stadium to its 1930s form. There have also been major upgrades to the clubhouse and around the Kooyong site.
A capacity crowd of more than 4,000 is expected on site each day to enjoy the unique boutique atmosphere which provides fans with the opportunity to watch the world’s best players in a relaxed and enjoyable setting.
Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club President, Adam Cossar, said the developments, upgrades and partnerships with new sponsors were a major boost for such an important tournament each summer.
“Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club is the spiritual home of tennis in Australia,” Mr Cossar said. “It is extremely important to the club to retain an event featuring the world’s best male and female players competing and experiencing the club.”
A world-class field assembled when the tournament was last played in 2020. French Open finalist Stefanos Tsitsipas, Australian star Nick Kyrgios, former world No. 1 Maria Sharapova, Wimbledon finalist Matteo Berrettini, US Open champion Marin Cilic, Billie Jean King Cup star Ajla Tomjlanovic and former world No. 3 Grigor Dmitrov continued the tradition at Kooyong.
Another quality field is assured for the return of the CareA2+ Kooyong Classic in 2023, with announcements regarding participants to be made in coming months.
The CareA2+ Kooyong Classic will be held at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club from January 10-12, 2023.
