N.B. When players go to enter on-line, they are asked to create a Tournament account if they don’t already have one. To create a Tournament account, players need their 11-digit Tennis Australia My Tennis Player ID Number (beginning '61').  Unfortunately, although the Tennis Australia on-line tournament entry system still requires the 11-digit My Tennis Player ID Number, Tennis Australia has stopped issuing Player ID Numbers automatically for new player registrations.  This means that players who do not have a Player ID Number, or don’t remember their number, need to contact Tennis Australia via or 1800 752 983 to obtain their number or have a number created for them.
