The Beastwear Favourite 8

With the Australian Open only days away (Jan 15th) and both the World’s best Men’s and Women’s Tennis stars converging upon Melbourne, including the likes of Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams, it goes without saying that the city is abuzz with excitement and anticipation for the event… It also just so happens that during this time we see a spike of interest in people wanting to play.

It’ll also come as no surprise to you that registration for the sport has already begun and carries through until the 29th of Jan. (Check out registration by state here)

From first timers, to those who’ve played previously and youngsters to seniors, the love for Tennis doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon and people all around Australia are getting involved.

So we’ve compiled our quick list of our favourite 8 secret courts and top clubs around Melbourne for you.
