The ATP Auckland Open (currently sponsored by Heineken) is a men's tennis tournament on the ATP International Series played in Auckland, New Zealand, taking place the week before Australian Open. It was also a combined men's and women's tournament until 1981. Currently the tournament venue ASB Tennis Centre hosts another women's tournament, the WTA Auckland Open, taking place the week before the men's tournament.

History

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 international tournament. The tournament was a joint men's and women's event until 1981.[1]

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 1970 and 1989 it was a tournament of the Grand Prix tennis circuit.
