If only people outside Sydney (or even some in Sydney) knew that Sydney Olympic Park isn't actually in Homebush, even though many people refer to the precinct as 'Homebush'. It would be funny to see if they ever got off at Homebush train station, and then realised they were miles away from Olympic Park. Although I'm sure a few have already had that experience :D

An upgrade for Ken Rosewall Arena and the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre.

From 2020, Ken Rosewall Arena will get a roof, and it will be used for both tennis and netball.

I'd like to see the business case for this. IMO, it is a sensible use of funds to unlock the potential of a stadium that is currently underutilised.


KEN ROSEWALL ARENA TO GET A ROOF IN 2019
4 January 2019 | Tennis NSW




The stadium named in honour of Australian tennis legend Ken Rosewall will acquire a roof in 2019 as part of a $50.5 million upgrade to Ken Rosewall Arena and the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre.

The project, announced on January 4th by New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Sports Minister Stuart Ayres, includes:
- The construction of a canopy roof structure over Ken Rosewall Arena and Show Court 1
- Upgrades to player and media facilities
- Additional lighting, seating and public amenities
- A new sprung floor to allow for multi-sport use.

Tennis NSW CEO Lawrence Robertson welcomed the news stating that the upgrade will allow tennis to attract new events and the best international talent.

“The redevelopment of Ken Rosewall Arena and Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre is extremely exciting for tennis in NSW. Primarily, as it ensures the facilities here remain among the best in the country and allow us to bid for new world-class events such as the ATP Cup.

“Sydney has a long tennis history and these upgrades will go a long way to ensure we are in the best possible position to continue that tradition have the ability to host major international events in all conditions.

“I’d like to recognise the hard work and support of the Premier and Minister Ayres for their help. Our aim is to put Sydney and NSW at the forefront of the sporting map both nationally and internationally, and this major upgrade will put tennis in a prime position to do this.

NSW Sports Minister Stuart Ayres said the government will work with Tennis NSW and Tennis Australia to deliver the project in time for the summer of tennis in 2020.

“The NSW Government is committed to securing premium international events for the state by investing in world-class sporting infrastructure, and upgrading the Tennis Centre will enable us to take another step towards achieving our goal of securing 10 world cups for NSW in 10 years,” Ayres said.

“It will also provide a much-needed venue to support the growth of Super Netball here in NSW, and we look forward to working with Tennis NSW and Tennis Australia to complete the upgrade as soon as possible.”

The project will be undertaken by Tennis NSW with funding and oversight from the state government, under an agreement that will ensure netball and other sports have access to the facility once the upgrade is complete.

Work on the Tennis Centre upgrade is expected to commence in early 2019 and the first stage will be complete in November 2019.

The upgrades will not only create an all-weather venue for tennis in Sydney but also allow for other events such as Super Netball to share the multi-sport facilities.
