The family-friendly precinct dedicated to activities and entertainment returns for 2022.

The arrival of the Australian Open once again brings not just the best athletes in the world to centre court, but an excellent opportunity to keep the kids entertained over the summer holidays.

The AO Ballpark for kids aged three to 14 returns with a dedicated entertainment and activity area that encompasses a stage with rotating games, shows and competitions; a dual 72-metre zip line that scoots above Waterplay and Nerf zones; a Zoos Victoria Zone that features a creative play area; and the AO Art Wall, with kids adding to a progressive art project using recycled and reusable objects.

To add to the excitement, there’s an Extreme Thriller carnival ride, the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots practise courts and hitting wall, and a range of food and beverage to help keep the kids well fuelled.

The precinct will also link with Practice Village – a tennis lover’s haven that lets you watch star players as they diligently prepare for their matches – to ensure both kids and adults can enjoy a jam-packed day up close to the action.

With Christmas around the corner, AO tickets makes for an ideal gift for the whole family.
