The Australian Made Foundation Cup, the interstate tennis challenge for children 13 and under from rural and regional Australia, will commence today at the Parramatta City Tennis Complex.

Children from as far as Pt Pirie, Merimbula and Traralgon will be representing their states in the only tennis event of its kind.

“The Australian Made Campaign is all about ensuring a better future for Australians, particularly young Australians and generations to come. We are proud to support the children of rural and regional Australia,” said Ian Harrison, Chief Executive of the Australian Made Campaign.

The Australian Made Campaign and the Fed Cup Foundation will award the best and fairest male and female players each a $1,000 cheque to assist with their tennis development.

“Often regional players don't have the opportunity to play high level tennis due to cost and travel constraints. The Australian Made Foundation Cup gives country children the same opportunities as their city counterparts. I encourage everyone to come and see some of Australia's most talented young country players at Parramatta this week,” said Judy Dalton, Australian Tennis Champion and President of the Fed Cup Foundation.

Some of Australia's greatest tennis players, such as Rod Laver, Margaret Court and Pat Rafter originated from country areas.

In recent years, elite players such as Australian Open and Wimbledon Junior Champion Luke Saville and Australian Fed Cup player Jessica Moore have participated in the event.

Play at the Australian Made Foundation Cup begins each day at 9am, with the final taking place on Thursday, 10 January. Entry is free.

The Australian Made Foundation Cup Awards Presentation will be held at Ken Rosewall Arena at the Apia International on Friday, 11 January.
