Ground Pass Tickets for the Australian Open

An After-5 Ground Pass ticket will be made available for the Australian Open in 2017, and this will allow ticket-holders to access the Open from 17h00 onwards for all of the sessions taking place from the 16th of January until the 20th. This ticket is aimed at spectators who wish to attend games after work, and will include access to all of the outside courts.

Any 3- or 5-Day Ground Pass

The Any 3- or 5-Day Ground Pass ticket provides you with access to any three or five days of the games, excepting Saturday the 21st of January and Sunday the 22nd. This ticket will provide a great discount on multiple sessions, and is a good choice for all the outside court or Hisense Arena action. Please bear in mind, however, that these tickets cannot be upgraded to those which grant access to reserved seats in the Rod Laver or Margaret Court Arenas, and cannot be used on the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of January.
