Come and experience a Touch of Classic

Tickets are on sale today for one of the hottest places to be early January, the 2018 ASB Classic. The tournament is back bigger than ever in 2018 with more world-class tennis, food & beverage offerings, fashion, and entertainment on show.

The 2018 ASB Classic line-up is set to present a fantastic line up across both women’s and men’s players. For the past four years the WTA has named the ASB Classis as The International Tournament of the Year Asia-Pacific.  

“We have several loyal international players who return year after year to start their tennis season in Auckland. There will also be a handful of strong new faces on the court come January, so we’re excited to grow the ASB Classic even further for 2018,” said Tournament Director Karl Budge.

Player signings will be revealed in the coming months with the full men’s and women’s line-up to be announced late November.

In addition to the world’s best tennis talent, the ASB Classic is the ultimate destination for all New Zealanders to experience the best off court sporting experience. “Every year we build on the success of previous tournaments, 2017 saw some unique additions to the food, music and fashion line-up, so we are thrilled to introduce some fresh and exciting partnerships to the mix this year.”

With over 70,000 people attending the ASB Classic earlier this year, the highest in its 62-year history, the event continues to grow with 14 of 20 sessions being sold out.

The ASB Classic will span for two weeks; the women's tournament kicking off on January 1st to 6th followed by the men’s tournament from January 8th to 13th. Tickets will be available for purchase through Ticketek. You can purchase tickets either online or over the phone on (0800 842 538) or in person at one of the agencies listed on the event website.
