It’s that time of the year again when the much anticipated South Pacific Open will take place at the Ulladulla Tennis Centre from Friday 19th until Monday 22nd of October. This is a prestigious and popular Gold Level National Tournament offering $8,000 in prize money across ten separate events for men and women culminating in the finals on Monday.
The committee members are proud to reveal that this event is so successful it is a finalist for the 2018 Tennis NSW Awards – Most Outstanding Australian Ranking Tournament. The winner will be announced at the glittering Awards event in Sydney on October 25.
Young up and coming as well as professional players and their supporters from all over NSW and interstate will come to Ulladulla to contest singles and doubles events for prizemoney and Australian ranking points.
Apart from the serious events the crazy “Dash for Cash” is a highlight on Saturday evening when all of the players get to let their hair down in an hilarious contest generously sponsored by South Coast Business and Financial Solutions.
This is a mixed doubles continuous tennis relay event unique to the SPO. Managing Director Karen Bashford said “It is an entertaining and fun event where players battle to win as much money as they can as quickly as possible and has to be seen to be believed.”
All members of the community are invited to attend any time throughout the weekend, entry is free and some amazing tennis is guaranteed.
While you’re watching the tennis your appetite will be satisfied with a barbecue, liquid refreshments and fully stocked canteen operated by our dedicated volunteers each day.
