The Australian Made Foundation Cup gives children 13 and under from across rural and regional Australia the opportunity to participate in competitive tennis at the highest level.
The tournament forms part of the Australian Made Summer of Tennis, an initiative of the Australian Made Campaign.
Aussie tennis champion and Fed Cup Captain, Alicia Molik, is the face of the campaign.
Other Australian Made Summer of Tennis events include Breakfast with the Stars and Lunch with the Stars, presented by the Australian Made Campaign during the Apia International in Sydney and Australian Open in Melbourne.
“The Australian Made Summer of Tennis celebrates local talent – and Australia has a lot to be proud of,” Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison, said.
“We produce some of the best quality products in the world, and our home-grown athletes are no exception.”
