Mix it with best, live grand slam dream
THOUSANDS of budding tennis players are expected to put their racquet skills to the test to take part in the Win a Wildcard competition, where the winner receives a wildcard into the mixed doubles event at Australian Open 2015.
Players aged 18 and over can participate, with three competition grades catering to all standards of play.
The winning pairs from the qualifying tournaments will be invited to Melbourne Park in December to contest the finals.
Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley said the initiative was designed to encourage grassroots tennis players to chase their Grand Slam dreams.
“We’re very excited to offer a mixed doubles wildcard into Australian Open 2015, and I encourage everyone to find their nearest qualifying tournament and sign up.
“This is the chance of a lifetime to join the world’s best tennis players at Melbourne Park,” he said.
