Professional tennis is embracing game culture with a special Fortnite exhibition during this summer's Australian Open. During the first of the four "Grand Slam" tournaments, fans can check out a solo tournament where competitors will vie for a share of about $400,000. A duo event with professional Fortnite players, content creators and celebrity gamers will compete to win a prize pool for a designated charity.
The latter event is open to anyone who would like to register. The first 500 eligible players will be put through a qualifying round ahead of the event.
The largest competitive gaming event in Australian history, the Fortnite Summer Smash at the Australian Open, lands at Margaret Court Arena in January!
