The Australian Open 2017 in Melbourne will start on January 16! One of the four annual Grand Slam tennis events, the competition will continue until the finals on the 28th and 29th for the women’s and men’s categories, respectively. You can get Australian Open final tickets from ticket merchants or marketplaces that still sell tickets like Ticket Merchant.
Sports Centre of Australia
The Australian Open is only one among the large sports events the Melbourne hosts every single year. Other small sports events also dot the Melbourne calendar. When you want to be in a city immersed in various kinds of sports, Australia’s Second City is the place to be. Here is a list of some of the sports events you may want to catch.
When you want something more fast-paced like the revving of engines and the whoosh of zooming race cars, you will find your home in the Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix. The racing event will be held on the tentative dates of March 23 to 26, 2017 at the Albert Park Circuit. The race, just like the Australian Open, is one of many racing events that will all make up the Formula 1 World Championship.
Instead of race cars, you can choose to watch motorcycle racing. The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix will be held on the proposed dates of October 22, 2017. The event will be on Phillip Island, an island off Melbourne that is a popular getaway. The Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix is only one of the 18 circuits within the Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix.
The last of the major events Melbourne hosts is the Melbourne Cup. The Melbourne Cup is more of a localised event, unlike the previously mentioned events. It is a thoroughbred horse race that is not a part of a worldwide horse racing event. The race will be on November 7, 2017, at the Flemington Racecourse.
You will be constantly entertained with all the sporting events that Melbourne has to offer. You can check out the smaller sports events as well to find an event to your liking.
