BIG WIN FOR NETBALL, TENNIS

Upgate creates international centre
NETBALL and tennis players and fans will benefit from a major upgrade to create an international level facility for both sports in Western Sydney.
 
The State Government has a $50.5M upgrade to the Tennis Centre at Sydney Olympic Park. 
 
As part of the upgrade, a new roof will be installed over Ken Rosewall Arena and Show Court 1 to create an all-weather high-performance environment for both sports. A timber sprung floor will also be installed at the Arena, capable of hosting major netball events. 
 
The upgrade will improve players’ facilities, lighting, ventilation, seating and public amenities. 
 
Netball NSW CEO Carolyn Campbell supported the announcement and said that by providing access to a purpose-built facility, netball will continue to see strong growth.
 
“Netball is one of the top sports in NSW when it comes to participation and is the market leader for women and young girls. Sydney requires a fit for purpose indoor venue to accommodate our professional franchises, the NSW Swifts and GIANTS Netball.”
 
Tennis NSW CEO Lawrence Robertson welcomed the news, stating that the upgrade will allow tennis to attract new events and the best international talent.
