Game, Set & Match in Sydney

While we’re all trying to lose the holiday weight gain from extra everything on food plates galore, there a multitude of die-hard pro tennis players kick us all into shape at the APIA International Tennis Tournament.
From the 5th to 11th January, the APIA games begin with both mens and womens games at the impressive NSW Tennis Centre, attracting the top players from around the world.
Dating back to 1855, this is one of the oldest tournaments in the world so it’s worth a trip to Sydney and check out the games. Originally located at the Sydney Cricket ground for the first NSW Open, it then switched venues to Double Bay and then spending an incredible 76 years at White City. In 2000, the tournament moved once again to the impressive Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Center.
Only 25 minutes drive from Cremorne Point, you can enjoy the series of games, yell and whoop for your favourite player and instead of heading back to the downtown hub of traffic, just leisurely drive back to Cremorne Point.
Overlooking the harbour, it’s a win/win for everyone as you can enjoy watching the skyline from Cremorne Point.
Tickets are extremely popular for this tournament, so book in advance.  Also, remember that you’ll be watching the best of the world’s best go head to head on the court, followed by a few drinks at Cremorne and watching the sun set. If anything, you’ll lose holiday weight from adrenaline and cheering on the game, followed by an energetic walk around Cremorne afterwards.
