Australia's next generation of tennis champions will take to the courts at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Centre for the Red Energy Australian Made Foundation Cup on Monday 14 January 2019.
The interstate tournament held during the Australian Open is an initiative of the Fed Cup Foundation and is the only event that provides young children from rural and regional Australia the opportunity to compete at a national level.
The best and fairest male and female players will each receive a $1,000 cheque to go towards their professional development.
“The Red Energy Australian Made Foundation Cup reminds us all about the importance of nurturing local talent – whether that be the next generation of athletes, farmers or manufacturers,” Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ben Lazzaro, said.
“Alongside Red Energy, the Australian Made Campaign is proud to support rural and regional Australia through this tournament.”
Fed Cup Foundation President, Judy Dalton will officially launch the Foundation Cup finals with support from Red Energy and the Australian Made Campaign at 8:00am Monday 14 January 2019 on the clay match courts at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Centre.
The competition will run from 14-17 January 2019 at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Centre, Melbourne. Members of the public are encouraged to drop in throughout the week and catch some of the action.
