ANZ is thrilled to continue our support of one of the world’s greatest sporting events.
As the only tennis Grand Slam tournament held in the southern hemisphere, the Australian Open offers many opportunities for our customers and employees to participate.
Our partnership stretches back to 2010 and underlines ANZ’s purpose to shape a world where people and communities thrive. This commitment is further highlighted by our additional support of tennis on a year-round basis at grassroots level.
Since 2014, ANZ has partnered Tennis Australia’s fast-growing children’s starter program, ANZ Tennis Hot Shots. Since its inception in 2008, Hot Shots has become one of the most popular sports programs for primary school children in Australia, with more than 700,000 children experiencing the program in the past 12 months alone.
Together with Tennis Australia, ANZ has also given out 140,000 tennis racquets to first year school children across Australia to encourage them to play tennis. In addition, the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Community Grants program has rewarded 20 tennis clubs and venues with a $10,000 tennis grant with entries currently open for a third year.
From local club level through to the Australian Open, ANZ is proud supporter of tennis.
