Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre

The Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre (now known as the Quay Centre) was one of the first sporting facilities to be built at the Homebush Bay site, long before the idea of any Olympic bid for Sydney was conceived. Situated 400 metres south of Telstra Stadium, the Sports Centre was used for table tennis and taekwondo during the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

The indoor facility has a fixed seating capacity of 3854 and an additional 1152 retractable seats enabling a capacity of around 5,000 for sports such as Basketball and Netball. The venue has also been used for events such as trade shows during its 20-year history. The centre also includes a Hall of Champions exhibition containing some rare sporting memorabilia dating back to the late 1800s. Adjacent to the State Sports Centre is the State Hockey Centre.
