Plans for Brisbane Tennis are on track for 2021, with the ATP Cup and Brisbane International to kick start the Aussie Summer of Tennis.

Along with Melbourne’s plans to host the Australian Open, scenario planning and conversations with government are positive and ongoing; with all measures being considered to ensure the world’s best players are able to compete in front of fans in Australia, including in Queensland.

“Both Brisbane events will take place in January and there’s a lot of work being done to ensure the safety of everyone. Our teams are working with government at all levels on how we can bring in international players safely and the logistics on how this will work,” said ATP Cup General Manager and Brisbane International Tournament Director Mark Handley.

“We will continue to work with all the authorities and within guidelines on crowd numbers, physical distancing and biosecurity protocols. We have a biosecurity team in place and will work with international experts to ensure best practice is implemented to safeguard the event for our players, fans and event delivery teams.”

For Brisbane, the ATP Cup and Brisbane International will feature many of the world’s best players as they launch a month-long campaign in Australia.

“Within an ever-changing environment we need to be agile and our scenario planning will remain fluid until closer to the summer. We will continue to update our fans as more information becomes available,” said Mr Handley.

Tickets are planned to go on sale in November.
