Tasmania has 4 qualifying spots in the main draw of the $30,000 Australian Indoor Championships.  We have maintained our 2 spots in the men’s field, while we have been increased to 2 spots again in the women’s field due to our increase in entries last year.  There will be financial assistance to the successful qualifiers for this event.
Tasmanian competitors have had much success in this event in the past.  In the past three years we have had 2 semi final finishes in the women’s section and a runner up in the men’s section.
