With just another six weeks until entries for January's Hobart Tennis International close, organisers are eager to see sporting stars return to the state.

The calibre of talent is currently a work in progress, but tournament director Darren Sturgess is hoping to see world number 15 Sophia Kenin have a shot at back to back titles.

"She's done an amazing job, a stellar career," he said. "We stay in touch, so fingers crossed we will get her back."

"We have had a good run with returning champions in the past."

Tickets for January's Hobart Tennis International have gone on sale, and in 2020, there will be a focus on appealing to families. 

"We've got kids going free all week like we have in the past, but this time we're including finals."

"It's never been more affordable for kids and families to come to the tennis." 

The event will also host a range of local food trucks and delicacies, a public beer garden, kids tennis activities on-court all week, and family friendly activities and entertainment

Tickets are currently available through Ticketmaster.
