Australians Joseph White (top seed) and Rhys Dowling (#3) are the host nation's leading lights in the men's drawm, while six Aussie women fill the top seven seedings including the top quartet of Alex Haydon, Sarah Cardwell, Madison Lyon and Erin Classen.

Play begins at 6pm AWST on Wednesday and entry is free throughout the tournament.

In addition to the PSA Challenger 6k tournament, 20 further graded competitions will be held from Friday.
