“I think it is a great opportunity for those people from the smaller nations to really gauge where their level of tennis is at,” Tournament Director David Boyes said on the benefits of the tournament.

“It may be the first time other than possibly some Oceania-specific ITF events that they’ve had the chance to compete against players from around the world.”

Federal Assistant Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon Tim Watts MP, was in attendance to present the winners with their trophies

“It’s an incredible opportunity for these young players from across the Asia Pacific to play on the same courts as their heroes at the Australian Open,” Watts said.

“You never know when you might see these young players in the main draw at the Australian Open.”
