Calling all tennis fans. Tennis players from as far as Melbourne and North Queensland are expected to descend on Redcliffe, joining hopeful local players in the 2019 Redcliffe Tennis Open.

Hosted by Focus Tennis Academy and Redcliffe Tennis Association, the tournament will be played at Redcliffe Tennis Centre over the last two weekends in August, and will be free for spectators.

Focus Tennis Academy's head coach and manager of the Redcliffe Tennis Centre, Chris Novic, said the Redcliffe Open was an AMT Bronze Level Tournament.    

“We have the mens and womens' singles and doubles, and generally get more than 150 players come and play in this tournament,” Chris said.   

Since the first Redcliffe Tennis Open was played in 1953, there have been some big name winners, such as Roy Emerson and Mal Anderson. But none is larger than Rod Laver, who hoisted the trophy in 1957 and 58.

The new Redcliffe Tennis Centre was built in October 2010 with 12 courts – six hard surface and six made of synthetic grass. Singles' winners since then have included Lizette Cabrera, who has been an Australian Federation Cup training squad member. The 2018 Women and Mens' singles' winners, Andie Dikosavljevic and Mitchell Robbins respectively, have each won multiple times. Andie also teamed up to win the 2018 mixed doubles.   

David Herbener, a Tennis Australia official and spokesperson for the Redcliffe Tennis Association, said this event was a great opportunity for the Redcliffe Tennis Centre to show off the modern facilities they had available.

“With undercover space provided, spectators will be able to view in comfort the high-quality tennis being played over the four days,” David said.

The Herbener name is well-known, having been associated with Redcliffe tennis since the 1960s. To honour their commitment to tennis, the Womens and Mens' singles' trophies are called the Herbener Cup.
