It was advertised as platinum. Entries are closed and now after 5 days of closure they write its silver ???
Unfortunately Tennis Australia has a reputation of doing what they feel like, doesn't make it right though!

Re: Australian Money Tournament Circuit

Wow, how disappointing. It seems like all the AMTs you enter lately seem to be cutting as many corners as they in $$$ terms. Ugh, so frustrating that the directors don't consider the impact on the players At least they could do it before the withdrawal date or tell you before entering, that a tournament level decrease would likely happen

Anyway, I agree, hope you play Mildura, an ITF, so you can get some better prizemoney and a few points.

But we thought it would be alright because it was covered by ITF.

Um, do you have time left in Australia to sign up for Mildura?

It's a 25k, and I'd love the idea of you playing a proper, traditional Australian grasscourt tournament.
I played two years in a row in Mildura so I know it there :-) i will play Port Pirie 100% and Mildura not sure

Acceptance lists now available.

TA has advised that the Mens Singles prizemoney is now $7500 and the Womens Singles prizemoney is $2500. Womens downgraded to a Silver AMT due to the womens pro tour event in Perth being the same week.

Thats for platinum playford week before port pirie. I entered because I wanted to play platinum. Now I read this message...
They found out 9.2.2016 that there is a tournament pro event in the same time so they will cut prize money. Do you really think guys this is normal? I just dont have words((((
It's pretty tough to keep changing the tournaments like this.. I'm going to be guessing this is why there aren't a lot of people trying to do what you do, there's so much unpredictability!

Do you know tournament numbers? Because they could be down (like other one) which is why they slashed the prize pool and they are just saying that the reason there is no one to play, is the tournaments in Perth. That's the only explanation I can think of. Yes, it seems rather stupid to suddenly realise there are ITFs on...the other side of the country!
I think 45 girls is enough girls.... I mean they still could cut it and reduce it to 75% but now its only silver :-(

Tess That sucks Zuzana. I used to play many tournaments at booroondara but dont much now as guy who runs it always does this! Considering how many other events he has (under 10s, 12s, etc) you would think he would be nicer with prizemoney as they make so much! Everyone is upset with booroondara dont worry and gets many complaints. Good win but versus masa. Anymore amts now?

I think its unfair....but cant do anything ...its all about director...he is the boss...yeah for qualifying i got 800$ so it helped ...i need to have some savings for mexico and usa.... Thanks for supporting anyway
Yeah, it seems like they really stretched this one, with such a big price money decrease because there were 46 rather than 47 Pity you can't get someone to overrule the director.

Anyway, when are you leaving for Mexico and USA? I think it will be a really good trip, lots of points and $$ to grab South America is a decent idea too if you like clay, the ITFs are very weak and accommodation and food is cheap.
In the beginning of March...:-) Mexico and USA... Mexico is on hard court and USA green clay :-) i wish someone could overrule him as well haha.... I will probably find some cheap airbnbs in mexico and usa as well which is great
