Optus’ sponsorship program is an important part of our business and it gives us a great opportunity to bring you closer to new and exciting experiences.
Optus’ sponsorship portfolio includes partnerships with:
Australian Open Tennis
From the ground up, Optus has been supporting Tennis in Australia since 2001 and, in 2005 we became Official Partner of the Australian Open.
As an official partner, Optus provide all the telecommunication solutions to the Australian Open and Tennis Australia. Our services are used by staff and media and the public, who attend the Australian Open. At the Australian Open, we boost our network coverage to ensure you can make calls, send text and download whatever you wish. For more information visit the Australian Open website.
Optus is the proud naming rights sponsor of the Australian Open Wheelchair Championships that take place during the second week of the Australian Open and the Australian Wheelchair Tennis Team.
Through these sponsorships Optus supports our wheelchair athletes succeed on the international stage and ensure that Australia remains home to some of the world’s best wheelchair athletes.

Belvoir St Theatre
Artistic Director - Ralph Myers
Optus’ partnership with Belvoir St Theatre, brings about dynamic, challenging and visionary productions. Since 1984, Belvoir St Theatre has engaged some of Australia’s most prominent and promising talent to produce innovative and acclaimed works of art. Predominantly performing in the heart of Surry Hills, Belvoir regularly takes to the road, touring across Australia and internationally at major arts centres and festivals.
As an exclusive sponsor of the Community Access Program since 2006, Optus is proud to partner with Belvoir to bring about various initiatives. Programs include the Unwaged Performance Program and the Charitable Tickets program, where complimentary tickets and performances are given to financially disadvantaged members of the community along with charities, community groups and volunteers.
Optus Golf Challenge
The first Optus Golf Challenge was held in 1991 and this year will be the 22nd event. The Optus Golf challenge goes from strength to strength each year.
Whilst networking is an important component of this event, the team entry fees help raise much needed funds for Kids Helpline. To date the Optus Golf Challenge has raised over $800,000 for charity.
This year’s Optus Golf Challenge will be held on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast at Noosa Springs Golf Course and Palmer Coolum Golf Course from 16 to 18 October 2013.
If you’d like information on the 2013 event please email Trevor Elborne on firstname.lastname@example.org or contact his office on (07) 5522 9165.
We look forward to welcoming you in Noosa at the 2013 Optus Golf Challenge.
In an Australian first, we’re unleashing the power of young people to make a difference in our community and join a movement of more than 100,000 people globally who’ve put their hands up to volunteer for music.
By giving 4 hours of time to an Optus RockCorps volunteering project, you will get given a ticket to an exclusive Optus RockCorps concert.
With over 5000 volunteers giving more than 20,000 hours back to local communities in 2013, you can still get involved.
To check out all the good work or learn about volunteering opportunities in your community, visit the RockCorps website to find out more or follow us on our Facebook page.
Other ways in which you can get help from Optus
Our current sponsorship portfolio is complete and we’re not actively seeking new sponsorship opportunities at this time.
Optus recognises that there will be local area initiatives and community programs which are worthwhile, yet may not meet our sponsorship criteria. With local area and community needs in mind, Optus has additional means of support through our annual community grants program.
