The capabilities of the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre have been enhanced with the opening of two indoor training courts.
The new courts, opened by NSW Sports Minister Stuart Ayres on Monday 24 July, are a joint initiative of Tennis NSW, Tennis Australia and Sydney Olympic Park Authority.
Minister Ayres applauded Tennis NSW and their partners in delivering an all-new capability that will benefit all levels of the sport.
“It’s really pleasing to see a new capability for a sport that’s for all players of a sport, of every level and expertise, delivering a completely new capability, one that will continue to help drive the future of tennis here in Sydney for many years to come.” Minister Ayres said.
The new courts are the only purpose-built indoor tennis training facility in the Sydney Metropolitan area and provide exciting new possibilities for the sport.
The new courts will provide aspiring NSW tennis champions and community players alike with an all-weather facility, while also supporting the Tennis Centre’s hosting of major events such as the annual Sydney International tournament and future Davis Cup matches.
The indoor courts allow international stars a place to practice and warm up out of the public gaze and prepare for big matches regardless of the weather.
It will also support further development of the National Academy’s players by providing year-round, all-weather training courts, while also allowing casual tennis bookings when not required for training.
Sydney Olympic Park Authority is proud to support these new facilities in its endeavour to continually meet the recreation and fitness needs of the community and athletes.
