Tennis: Agassi to visit NZ

Former tennis superstar Andre Agassi will visit New Zealand this summer for "two glittering gala dinners" in Auckland and Christchurch.

The former world No 1 will share his story with audiences and take part in a Q+A when he visits on January 23 and 24.

Agassi turned pro at the age of 16 and went on to win 60 men's singles titles, including eight Grand Slams.

Tickets for the dinners start at $199.50 plus GST for a single seat and up to $299.50 plus GST for a VIP single seat.

A "celebrity VIP table" for 10 guests costs up to $5995 plus GST and includes an unnamed celebrity seated at your table.

Bookings can be made at ducoevents.co.nz.

The event in Christchurch is on January 23 followed by the dinner in Auckland the following night.
