We love tennis, cricket, AFL and NRL. Going to watch the tennis is a bit expensive, so we haven't done that yet, but we've been to a few cricket, footy and rugby matches. Watching on TV and going to the stadium to watch the matches are totally different experiences, both enjoyable.
My favourite Melbourne sporting event, without doubt is the AFL GRAND FINAL at the MCG. Dont care who is playing as long as it stays in Melbourne. My second favourite would be the MELBOURNE CUP, love the fashions and of course the big race, and the sweeps that go with it. jojo
