Here is a list of the prize money up for grabs for the men and women doubles tennis players at the 2017 Australian Open.



The Australian Open is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments that take place annually and it features the best players and highest prize money purses in tennis. Over $37 million is up for grabs for the men and women tennis players at the 2017 Australian Open including doubles players.

The women and men tennis players are paid the exact same amounts of prize money at the Australian Open for all play including singles, doubles and mixed doubles.
