If you're looking to hit the courts, this neon-themed bar is the best place to do it.

For two weeks every January, the streets of Richmond are overrun by smiling, tipsy tennis fans and no one seems to be able to take their eyes off the sports channel.

The Australian Open is here. To celebrate, Ballers Clubhouse is hosting a thrilling glow in the dark Melbourne tennis pop-up from its massive CBD funhouse.

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

Running from January 13 to 28, the over-the-top experience brings together all of the joys of the tennis season with the silly, quirky and interactive spirit Ballers Clubhouse is known for.

Head to the venue’s third floor, past the shuffleboards and dartboards, and you’ll find a technicolour tennis oasis filled with vibrant decor and enough party games to last you all night.

Try your hand at a round of ping pong, snap a pick in the photo booth, or take a dip in the ball pit filled with more than 100,000 balls. And yes – there’s even a real tennis court, where guests can rally to their hearts’ content.

Those who don’t want to miss one moment of the AO can catch the action on the big screen, with a delicious light-up cocktail or a cheesy slice of pizza in hand. For the ultimate experience, the venue is also offering a Game, Set and Match cocktail package.

“Last year our CBD venue became the epicentre of excitement for tourists and tennis enthusiasts alike, as thousands gathered to experience the adrenaline rush of glow-in-the-dark tennis,” says Josh Lefers, Co-owner of Ballers Clubhouse.

“This year, we’re turning up the heat to deliver an even more exhilarating spectacle. Glow in the dark tennis isn’t just a game; it’s a one-of-a-kind experience that captivates hearts, there’s simply nothing else like it.”
