Australia’s Summer of Tennis Is Underway!

Australian Summer of Tennis 2023

Posted on:

The Australian Summer of Tennis is well underway with the Gravity Media crew across the ATP Cup, the Adelaide International Tournament, the ATP Summer Series and the Australian Open qualifiers all leading up to the Australian Open which begins next week!   

Gravity Media has kick-started Australia’s summer of tennis by supplying outside broadcast trucks HD 5 and HD 6 at the ATP Cup in Sydney and HD 9 at the Adelaide International Tournament.   

The ATP Cup brings together the sport's best players competing as a team, hosted across two venues in the Ken Rosewall Arena at Sydney Olympic Park and the Qudos Bank Arena. Adelaide is hosting two ATP 250 events during the 2022 Australian summer. The first was the Adelaide International 1, which was played Monday 3 to Sunday 9 January and the second is the Adelaide International 2, played from Monday 10 to Saturday 15 January.   

The Gravity Media team then went on air for a week with the ATP Melbourne Summer Set Series. From Monday 3 to Sunday 9 January, the team covered matches at Melbourne Park across Rod Laver Arena and seven other courts, capturing the action from two WTA events and one ATP 250 event. 

All eyes were then on the Australian Open qualifying matches which commenced on Monday 10 January. Gravity Media was across 12 courts as the team captured Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray amongst others as they compete for their spot in the Australian Open main draw!    

The Grand Slam season starts off at the Australian Open, where fans come together for stellar tennis, as players from around the globe participate in the first of four Grand Slam events taking place this year, which Gravity Media will be delivering the coverage of.  

There is a team of over 150 people employed by Gravity Media across the Australian Open who continue to work in difficult COVID circumstances making this project all the more commendable. We’re immensely proud of our team on the ground and the sacrifices they’ve had to make. 

At Gravity Media, tennis is in our DNA. We’ve been active in the market for over three decades, and we’re fans of the game as much as broadcast and production partners. To find out how we can help with your next production, email enquiries@gravitymedia.com
