Australian and international players will compete in the only LGBTQIA+ premier tournament held during a Grand Slam event anywhere in the world.
Come to compete or just enjoy the spectacle! Partners and guests are welcome.
The VicTennis Glam Slam 2018 is a sanctioned tournament of the Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance (GLTA). GLTA-sanctioned tournaments provide a safe space for LGBTQIA+ players to have fun playing competitive tennis in an environment where all who share the value of diversity are welcome.
To compete, you need to register through the GLTA tournament software - follow the more info link. For players without a current GLTA profile, a new profile must be set up to register.
In order to accommodate organisation of the event, the deadline for entry registration is 10 January 2018 or when draws are full – so get in quick!
