Originally built as the swimming venue for the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, the Holden Centre as it is now known as, is now the training and administration base of the Collingwood Football Club following a major redevelopment in 2003. Prior to this, the venue was known as the Melbourne Sports and Entertainment Centre (or the "Glasshouse") and hosted events such as basketball.

The building was remodelled internally in 2003 to become a new Sports Administration and Training Centre for the Magpies, offering efficient operational and athlete services, including a 25m swimming pool, hydrotherapy spa, theatrette, and administration offices.

The Holden Centre serves as a centre of excellence for professional organisations and elite athletes. Its inaugural tenants, the Victorian Institute of Sport and the Collingwood Football Club, have based their business and athlete operations within the Centre. Further redevelopment works have been completed in late 2012 and early 2013 to further enhance the venue.

The venue was originally constructed for the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games in which it was the first ever Olympic Pool to have a roof. Shortly after the Games, the venue became the Melbourne Sports & Entertainment Centre, playing host to a variety of events. Often referred to as 'The Glasshouse' following renovations in 1983, the 7,500-seat venue was the home of Basketball in Melbourne. Former-NBL team the North Melbourne Giants continued to call the venue home following the opening of the National Tennis Centre which became the new headquarters of Basketball.
