The ATP Auckland Open (currently sponsored by ASB as the ASB Classic) is a ATP and WTA tennis tournament played in Auckland, New Zealand, and taking place the two weeks before the Australian Open. It is a men's 250 level and a women's International level event. The tournament is played on outdoor hard courts at the ASB Tennis Centre.

History[edit]

In 1920 when Auckland Tennis was looking for a permanent base, the only available site was a tip in Stanley Street. Undeterred, the local clubs raised the-then enormous sum of 1,800 pounds to prepare the site and build new courts. For the next 30 years the ASB Bank Tennis Centre in Stanley Street was home to hard-fought local tennis matches. In 1956 Auckland hosted its first permanent international tournament, the Auckland Championship. The tournament was a joint men's and women's event until 1981.[1] After being separated for 34 years, the WTA and ATP merged the event in 2016. Heineken will still be a sponsor but will have a diminished role in anticipation of new tennis regulations restricting alcohol sponsorship.[2]

By the 1960s the shuttle bus fare from town to Stanley Street was sixpence. Admission was five shillings for the first three days and 7/6 for finals and semifinals – a whole tournament for the equivalent of $4. By the 1970s, 25 cents got you all-day parking next door at Carlaw Park. Between 1979 and 1989 it was a tournament of the Grand Prix tennis circuit.
