Australian Open Ballkids 2019

March 25 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Do you want to be a ballkid at the 2019 Australian Open?

The Australian Open Ballkids Level 1 trials will be held at Altona Tennis Club on Sunday 25th March 2018. This trials will be split into 2 groups, and is the perfect opportunity for your child to be apart of the Australian Open in 2019.

What does a ballkid do?

Ballkids play an integral role in ensuring that tennis tournaments run smoothly. Throughout the Australian Open series, each ballkid is a focal part of every game, be it at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne or at the Brisbane International, Hobart International or the Apia International Sydney. Ballkids are aged between 11 and 17 years depending on the tournament age restrictions.

Congratulations to Vida players and Altona club members Finley Baker and Misha Lotze for being selected as Ballkids for the upcoming Australian Open in January. 
The process for being selected began at the level 1 trial at Altona Tennis Club last March. Successful candidates then went forward to a level 2 trial in April at Melbourne Park. Those who made the cut then attended regular training sessions from May. Finley & Misha also practised their training routines nearly every day and the work certainly paid off when they received confirmation in October that they had been successful. They will hone their skills at the forthcoming December Showdown Junior Australian Championships at Melbourne Park before the Australian Open 15-28th January (inclusive).
