Hume Tennis Centre to host Interactive Australian Open Live Site

Craigieburn Tennis, January 2019

Hume Tennis & Community Centre, one of Australia’s best tennis complexes, situated in Craigieburn, is transforming into an Interactive Live Site for this summer’s 2019 Australian Open.

Each day and night for 14 days everyone is welcome to watch the Australian Open on a cinema sized outdoor LED screen and then jump on the courts to imitate their favourite players’ best shots.

Hume Tennis & Community Centre Director, Tim Connelly, said to have an outdoor community event that is linked to an iconic Australian sporting event is the next best thing to experiencing the amazing Australian Open vibe.

“Each day from 11am, families are welcome to come in to the Centre and enjoy the tennis on the big screen as well as trying their hand on court themselves on the same surface as the Australian Open.”

“We want to offer families in Craigieburn and surrounding areas more interactive and outdoor community activations. With free entry each day there is no reason why families or groups of friends can’t come down and experience the fun of tennis.”

During this time, Hume Tennis & Community Centre will also host the Stockland Melbourne Wheelchair Tennis Open from the Tuesday January 15th – Saturday 19th. Attendees will be treated to two amazing experiences: being able to watch the best wheelchair tennis players in the world in person, as well as watching the world’s best tennis players like Roger Federer and Serena Williams live from the Australian Open.

“We will have our café open to serve lunch and dinner each day, which will feature a new pizza menu and licensed bar. To complement this, patrons will enjoy live music (from 5pm on selected nights) and introductory free tennis lessons for juniors and adults.

This is the start of more regular outdoor entertainment at the Centre – with family outdoor movies planned for the warmer months of February and March.

The Australian Open starts on Monday January 14th and concludes with the Men’s final on Sunday January 27th. Hume Tennis Live Site will start each day from 11am until 11pm.

The Hume Tennis and Community Centre features 14 plexi-cushion and 2 European clay tennis courts, each of which is flood-lit.The courts are tailored to people of any age, and the Centre offers a perfect setting for social and competition tennis.
