How we're playing it safe

Australian Open 2021, will be like no other. Our grand slam precinct will be ready to again host some of most scintillating and memorable tennis encounters, and most importantly in a COVIDSafe environment. 
Our primary focus is to keep our community safe. 

In order to have a COVIDSafe AO 2021 the whole precinct is being redesigned to implement a range of measures to look after everyone. The Melbourne Park precinct will consist of three key zones, with each arena located in a separate zone (Rod Laver Arena zone, Margaret Court Arena zone and John Cain Arena zone). 

What we’re doing on-site

A robust and thorough COVIDSafe plan will be implemented for Australian Open 2021 in accordance with the Victorian Government’s Public Events Framework. We will work with DHHS and other agencies to ensure that all aspects of your event experience are consistent with public health expectations.
