Brisbane International - something we can be proud of
The Brisbane International might still be one of our younger sporting events but it has quickly become one of our best. The team behind the tournament held at the State Tennis Centre each January can be proud with what they have achieved.
Not only is it a great event that is superbly run but it is in my opinion now one of our most important events. A terrific way to showcase Brisbane to the world. Make no mistake the coverage of the tournament is genuinely world wide. To have Roger Federer at this years event just adds to the tournaments worldwide appeal.
I have a feeling the ATP tour representatives in town with the players are overwhelmed by what Brisbane has to offer and the standard by which the tournament has been run.
I will however say this. I think the tournament will reach a peak and could take a couple of backward steps in the next few years if action isn't taken now. The tournament needs a 2nd stadium court so it can continue to grow. I'm not saying build another Pat Rafter Arena, but maybe a boutique 2000 to 2500 seat stadium. The crowds are turning up in greater number year after year. The State Government surely must realise it would be an investment that would quickly pay for itself.
The tournament should be a lesson to the government that if you spend money wisely then the benefits are endless. Spend a bit more on the Brisbane International and the sky's the limit.
I know people will disagree with me by saying the money can be spent in other areas. That may be true, but anyone that says that, hasn't seen how good this event is and also hasn't been overseas while the event is on. 4 years ago I was in Europe and saw the Brisbane International on TV. There it was - Brisbane shown on the other side of the world in all its glory. Much better value than a G20 summit.
So to Cameron Pearson and the staff involved at the Brisbane International I say well done and keep up the great work and hopefully we can continue to see this great event become even better.
