Last Fornight in January
Held every year throughout the last fortnight in January, the Australian Open is one of the major annual tennis tournaments.
First held in 1905, the Australian Open is the first of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments to be held each year and has been played on the hard courts at Melbourne Park since 1988. It was the first of the Grand Slam tournaments to accommodate indoor play during wet or extremely hot weather with it's two primary courts now fixed with retractable roofs and able to offer uninterrupted play.
Featuring men's and women's singles, men's, women's and mixed doubles and junior championships, there are also wheelchair, legends and exhibition events that take place throught the fortnight of the tournament.
The Australian Open is an extremely popular sporting event and never fails to attract a huge crowd every year. Talk to your Charter Broker today about organising a luxury yacht charter to Australia during the tournament to watch this fantastic sport while enjoying the summer weather. Be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen and heat protection though, as the weather here can get extremely hot during the summer months.
