Men’s and women’s professional tennis will hit the spotlight at the Latrobe City Traralgon Tennis International next year when the prestigious event returns to the Traralgon Tennis Association for back-to-back weeks.
Placed in the region by SMA, the event will take place from 18th February to 3rd March. The two Australian Pro Tour events will offer a total prize pool of more than AUD $130,000 and valuable world ranking points. Tennis Australia and Tennis Victoria will host the tournament in conjunction with the Traralgon Tennis Association and with the invaluable support from the Latrobe City Council and Destination Gippsland.
Tennis Australia’s Pro Tour Manager, Fiona Luscombe, thanked SMA and the region for their commitment. ”We are extremely grateful for the support of Latrobe City Council, Destination Gippsland, the Traralgon Tennis Association and the community for their support to be able to host these events,” Luscombe said.
Mayor of Latrobe City Council, Councillor Darren Howe, said council was excited to again host the Latrobe City Traralgon Tennis International. “Off the back of Latrobe City hosting the Australian Open Junior lead-in event in January 2024, we are delighted to welcome another international standard sport event into the region”, the Mayor said.
Destination Gippsland CEO, Terry Robinson, echoed the sentiments saying it was really exciting to see the event return to Traralgon with back-to-back tournaments supporting a healthy economic impact into local communities with an opportunity to showcase the region as a great destination to visit.
