The Grand Slam
The Grand Slam season begins at the Australian Open, where fans from across the globe come for stellar tennis and a laid-back atmosphere in Melbourne. Of late, the Grand Slam of Asia/Pacific has been a playground for the Big Four, with either Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal (2009) having won all but two of the Australian Open titles since 2004.
THE HAPPY SLAM
Nicknamed “the happy slam” and often referred to as the “Grand Slam of Asia/Pacific” the tournament is the highest attended Grand Slam event, with more than 812,000 people attending the 2020 tournament. It was also the first Grand Slam tournament to feature indoor play during wet weather or extreme heat with its three primary courts, Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne Arena and the refurbished Margaret Court Arena equipped with retractable roofs.
Sports Travel Group will once again be providing an extensive range of packages for the first day of tournament all the way to the Final, including accommodation, tickets, local activities and exclusive access to special experiences and events.
