AUSSIE ITTF GRAND TOUR. FROM POVERTY TO PROSPERITY.

This year 2017 compared to 2016, Australia Open has amazingly increased its total money fund from 35,000$ to 384,000$, thus getting the glory of the "World's best payed table tennis event ever". Aussies have now overtook Kuwait Open 2016 (deceased this year) with its 300,000 prize fund.

I'd really admire to know what is the actual reason for such a tremendous generosity by the Aussies TT Association. Is it comes because ITTF's trying to better cultivate the sport all over the Globe, or just because of personal ambitions / vanity of some of the local moneybags? Have you any true guess?

Has anyone seen an official announcement on this, or can confirm that it's authentic? It's it's true, it deserves to be promoted!

I am only aware of it from that mytt thread. When it came out I did look at the TTA web site but there was nothing. Just took a look at it again - the web site has been revamped. Nothing about it under News since November. Under events it is simply an item on the calendar with Platinum in the title.

Sunday 2 July - Friday 7 July 2017 ITTF World Tour Platinum Australian Open Brisbane Queensland, AUS

Promotion - some table tennis organisations have allegedly heard of it.

(not that I can talk - our local association championships are a very well kept secret too).

Hopefully they'll use it to full advantage to promote the event closer in time. They should not wait too long though if they want to attract high profile international players.

Money talks, to the players anyway. As far as local promotion goes ...
