The Tennis Centre at Sydney Olympic Park is set to undergo upgrade after the NSW Government has announced a $50.5 million budget to improve lighting, ventilation and seating.
Key features of the project include a new roof which will be installed over Ken Rosewall Arena and Show Court 1 to provide an all-weather environment for sports, with a timber sprung floor capable of hosting major netball events to be installed at the Arena. With an additional 10,000 seats for the facility, lighting ventilation seating, players’ facilities and public amenities will also be improved by the upgrade.
The upgrade project aims to provide better facilities for netball and tennis athletes and fans and provide opportunities for both sports to meet the growing demands in Western Sydney. It also targets to secure major international sporting events as part of the state government’s 10 World Cups in 10 years strategy.
