The 2006 Australian Festival of Tennis

The Event:

Everything that's great about Aussie tennis says it all.

There is simply nothing quite like this event which uniquely combines the opportunity for you to play tennis and represent your corporate organisation competing for an Australian Championship, with travel and entertainment alongside the opportunity to network in the company of stars. The Australian Festival of Tennis is a complete participant and spectator experience packaged for wide spread appeal and held at Hyatt Regency Coolum on the beautiful Sunshine Coast.

The Competition:

• The Australian Corporate Doubles Championship
• The Starlight Cup Australian Pro-Celebrity Challenge
• The Australian States Junior Challenge Tournament
• The Junior Slam Open Tournament

In addition to attracting competitors from across Australia and New Zealand representing many well known corporate organisations, the Australian Pro-Celebrity Tennis Challenge attracts some of the highest profile sporting and media celebrities including:

Mark Beretta, Simon O'Donnell, Steve Leibmann, Pat Rafter, Delta Goodrem, Wally Masur, Sonia Kruger, John Newcombe, Richard Clapton, Shannon Noll, Jamie Durie, Tony Roche, Holly Brisley, Heather McKay, Ken Rosewell, Allan Border, John Fitzgerald, Evonne Cawley, Layne Beachley, Kirk Pengilly

Working with the Starlight Children's Foundation the Event has to date contributed an incredible $75,000 to this wonderful charity. The Starlight Children's Foundation delivers "distractive therapies" that restore the laughter and joy that serious illness and hospitalisation can take away. Starlight currently reaches one in three seriously ill children but we can all play a part in helping them achieve their goal of reaching three out of three children by 2010.

The Australian Festival of Tennis also supports the development of Australia's emerging junior stars by bringing the best young male and female players together for a career building week working with Australia's best coaches and tennis legends.

The open Junior Slam competition is played in both singles and doubles categories across all age divisions.
