State Basketball Centre
The Victorian State Basketball Centre is located just off Eastlink in Wantirna South and is part of the Knox Regional Sports Park precinct. The venue was completed in 2012, costing $27 million, and is the new home of Knox Basketball Inc & Basketball Victoria Offices (relocating from the old Knox Basketball Stadium in nearby Boronia). The centre includes six basketball courts, five of which can be configured for netball, including a 3,200-seat show court which allows fans a birds eye views of the action and a smaller 200-seat show court. The centre is the home of WNBL side Melbourne Boomers and the training and administration headquarters of NBL club South East Melbourne Phoenix, who also play some home games at the venue.
A $132 million expansion of the facility will commence in late 2021, boosting the number of indoor courts to 18, a gymnastics centre, high performance facility, town square space and office space.
