It’s that time of year again, and we couldn’t be more excited if we tried. Why? Because it’s tennis season, baby! We’ve teamed up with mega-tennis fans Mastercard to bring you the best darn guide to the Australian Open you ever did see, including a bunch of secret deals exclusive to Mastercard cardholders.
Game, set, match! Here’s three easy steps to make the most of your time at the Australia Open. Sorry, this article won’t actually give you skills like Serena, but it will let you in on how to score front row seats!
#1 Keep An Eye Out For The Happy Snappers
If you thought being amongst the action at the Australian Open was as good as tennis season can get, we’ve got some pretty great news for you. The Mastercard Happy Snappers will be roaming around the event with over 200 prizes to give to Australian Open attendees (yup, that’s you!) and the people roaming around Melbourne CBD. So, keep your eyes peeled for the Happy Snappers if you’re interested in snagging ground passes, ticket upgrades (hello front row seats!), finals tickets, meet and greets and so, so much more. So, be sure you’re around Melbourne to snag these Priceless Surprises because we’re pretty sure you won’t want to miss that. These prizes are unlocked by the happiness meter (scroll down for more info!), so make sure you're engaging every. single. day.
#2 Get In On The Games
The games on the court aren’t the only games going on during the Australian Open. That’s for sure. Mastercard’s Tap Tennis app is available on the App Store or their website. Face off with the best players in real time, on the court, just like Fedz and Serena. I mean, does it get any better than that? To get in on the action just download the app and get playing.
#3 Share Your Emotions
If you’re not one for overt displays of emotions, this could be the turning point. Mastercard have put together a Happy Meter. To join the fun simply check out their Facebook page and comment on the relevant competition posts with something that made you happy that day, or something that made someone else happy—it’s all about sharing the love! Or, you can simply share a top tip for visiting the Australian Open; think loading up on sunscreen, packing a hat and sunnies or even wearing comfy shoes. It all counts! Make sure it’s a goodun’ though, because they’ll be checking the comments weekly and giving away a score of epic prizes like flights to Melbourne and accommodation during the tournament, and signed merchandise. Your engagements on the Happiness meter unlock all of the prizes, so make sure you're getting involved.
That’s how you do the Australian Open right. Take note people!
