Foamex supports 2019 Australian Open tennis championship

Australian Open

At Foamex we use our proprietary Styroboard™ ™ EPS sheets and blocks to deliver a number of creative applications for our clients, from signage, lettering and shop fittings, to events and props. The lightweight nature and long-lasting properties of Styroboard™ ™ EPS make it ideal for such creative applications.

Tennis Australia, the governing body for tennis in Australia, recently engaged Foamex to produce Styroboard™  EPS expanded polystyrene 3D signage for the official launch of the 2019 Australian Open, one of only four annual grand slam tennis championships.

For the function, which took place in early October 2018, Tennis Australia tasked us with producing a rush order for large Styroboard™ EPS 3D signage that read “#AUSOPEN”. The seven letters and hashtag in the sign each individually measured 120cm x 120cm x 80cm, making the total dimensions of the sign 960cm x 120cm x 80cm.


Exceeding client expectations

The official launch of the 2019 Australian Open is a major media event for Tennis Australia, and VIPs in attendance on the day included Victorian Minister for Sport, Tourism and Major Events, John Eren MP, and Tennis Australia CEO Craig Tiley. So it was critical that we delivered the signage on time and to the expectations of our client.

We achieved this by delivering the solution Tennis Australia required, when they required it. Commenting on our work, a spokesperson for Tennis Australia said, “It looks amazing, everyone is very excited. Thanks so much for helping us out with the rush order.”

Our “#AUSOPEN” Styroboard™ EPS 3D signage will be used by Tennis Australia at various events during the 2019 Australian Open, a globally watched sporting event that takes places at Melbourne Park from January 14-27.
