With the ATP and WTA Tours competing for Australian Open glory Down Under, local junior players took to the courts of SPORTIME Kings Park for a special event, as the SPORTIME World Tour made its annual stop in Melbourne for an Australian Open-themed event.

“The Melbourne World Tour event at SPORTIME Kings Park went really well. We had many first-timers who were excited about the event, had a great time and cannot wait to play the next one,” said Jason Wass, SPORTIME’s Regional Director of Tennis and the Director of the World Tour. “Each event takes on a life of its own, and we are trying to offer new on-court games and off-court activities to make each SPORTIME World Tour event unique.”

DJ CM was on hand, keeping parents and kids entertained in the party room, where food and beverages were being served for the groups waiting to go on court. On the court, players showcased their skills and talents through different drills and clinics, as parents and guests enjoyed the day.


SPORTIME’s World Tour continues to be a popular and unique series of events that gives young players in SPORTIME’s programs a fun experience and allows them to have a small taste of a professional tennis tournament experience.


“Our next event is scheduled for March 23 at SPORTIME Syosset,” said Wass. “Syosset is one of the bigger facilities that we use to host our World Tour, so we are gearing up for our biggest and best event ever with an Indian Wells theme!”
