Melbourne hosts this famous tournament at the start of every year and draws visitors from all over the world, with most of the main notable matches held at the Rod Laver Arena. The tournament is held in January every year, so it’s the first Grand Slam title of the tennis season.

As part of ongoing expansion plans, the AO will continue to ramp up the attractions in the qualifying week and week two, embarking on a long-range attendance target of one million fans flocking to Melbourne Park.
