General Information


The tournament has been held in Auckland since the early 1920s, but for a long time its status was very weak and only local athletes took part in the games. With the development of tennis in the region, the level of the Auckland prize gradually rise, which from 1956 hosted more and more athletes from all over the world, and from 1969 it was open not only for amateurs but also for professionals. In the first year, the winner's prize among men was $1,683 and $780 among women. In 1988, the tournament prize fund reached $100,000.

World tennis leader Rod Laver took part in the first open tournament and reached the finals; the women's tournament was won three times during the first ten years by Yvonne Gulagong. Among the winners of the men's singles tournament are Bjorn Borg, Marcelo Rios, Gustavo Kuerten, Olympic champion in Seoul Miloslav Mecir.

In recent years, the tournament is part of a series of competitions in preparation for the Australian Open.
