Margaret Court Arena redevelopment
Wednesday 18th January 2012  |  More News

SHARE:

New designs have been released of the Melbourne Park Western Precinct development including the new-look 7,500-seat roofed Margaret Court Arena.

The arena, which opened with Rod Laver Arena in 1988, will become the third enclosed stadium at Melbourne Park and will fill the gap between the 3,500-seat State Netball & Hockey Centre and the 10,500-seat Hisense Arena.

A retractable roof, 1,500 seats and new spectator facilities will be added to the venue. When complete, Margaret Court Arena will also be able host Basketball, Netball and Concerts, in addition to Tennis.

The redevelopment is part of a $363 million project which will also feature eight new indoor courts, 13 outside courts, a plaza and a pedestrian link between AAMI Park, Melbourne Park and the MCG.

Tennis Australia chief Steve Wood said it was a sign of big things to come.

"The redevelopment will ensure the Australian Open has the very best grand slam facilities in the world. We are the only event with two, and soon to be three, retractable roofs, enabling us to continue play in all weather conditions," he said.

"(The development) has cemented the future of the Australian Open in Melbourne until 2036."
