The early bird deadline for entries to the Australasian Gay & Lesbian Open 2013 (AGLO) is Sunday, December 9. As well as Australia, entries have already been received from LGBTI players around the world, including the US, Argentina, Indonesia, Greece, France, Germany, the UK and Philippines. “We are tracking well with entries and the event is shaping up as being the biggest event Tennis Sydney has hosted,” said AGLO tournament director Dean Matterson.
“And it’s great to see an increase in the number of women who have entered the tournament.”
The tournament will consist of singles, doubles and mixed competition across all grades for men and women. The tournament is part of the Mardi Gras Festival and will be held at Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre from February 15-17, 2013.
