By Louis Costello

What screams ‘summer’ more than tennis? At this point, it’s synonymous with longer days, warmer nights, and sun-kissed Aussies flocking to venues to get their yearly dose of sports stars in action. 

To ring in the new year and welcome the warmer months, Brisbane International is officially back for another round with a lineup sure to dazzle the masses. Tennis legends will be hitting the courts from the end of December for an entire week, so it looks like Brisbane is the official destination of summer 2024.

Here’s everything happening over Brisbane International’s run from 31 December 2023 to 7 January 2024, with a little something for everyone. 

Bring On The World’s Best Players

Mere days ago, Rafael Nadal confirmed he’d be attending Brisbane International from the end of December to duke it out with the other world-class players. The 22-time Grand Slam champ will be joined by tennis heavyweights Naomi Osaka, Andy Murray, Aryna Sabalenka, Ben Shelton, Elena Rybakina, Holger Rune, Victoria Azarenka and Grigor Dimitrov, to name a few. 

That lineup alone promises days of intense clenching and white knuckles as the audience stare intently at their fave players, praying they leave the court victorious. 

14 sessions will take place in total, split evenly over the days and nights for the entire run of Brisbane International, so head here to scope out tickets and more info on when your beloved tennis pro will be wielding a racquet.
