Tennis fans who can't get enough of the Australian Open action on now can visit TennisPuzzles.com to play tournament-themed crossword, word search and wordoku* puzzles. The website features three puzzles that include clues about the season's first major, which is being played in Melbourne from Jan. 19 to Feb. 1.
TennisPuzzles.com offers free interactive games, which can be printed for offline play. The site is a cool way for fans to stay mentally sharp, learn tennis history and have "tennis fun off the court!"
"Tennis is a mind game and so are these Australian Open-themed puzzles," says editor Liza Horan. "The sport draws thinking types who love a bit of competition and fans can time their puzzle-solving abilities to compete against themselves or friends. TennisPuzzles.com offers fun off the court and also teaches tennis history."
All three puzzles types are authored by Matt Gaffney exclusively for the TennisWire Network. Gaffney's work has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and The Onion, among others. The Complete Idiot's Guide to Crossword Puzzles & Word Games is among the books he's written.
Tennis companies wishing to engage consumers in their brand to learn about products and services can sponsor the games on TennisPuzzles.com. When a company sponsors a puzzle, it receives logo branding and customized clues.
The website is the latest addition to the TennisWire Network, which includes TennisWire.org (industry news and resources), WorkInTennis.com (career center), and HelloTennis.com (stories behind the headlines). The TennisWire Network connects industry insiders with the media, fans, and players. All four sites offer free email newsletters.
