The 2021 Melbourne Open went ahead, after postponing the date and also with a change of location. A total of six players took part, all from the state of Victoria.
Matt Vinar finished the 5 preliminary rounds undefeated and it looked like it would be yet another tournament win for the 13-time Australian champion. However Ivan Chan created the surprise in the final winning the game 42-22.
