The Memorial Drive Centre Court Redevelopment transforms its heritage setting to create a new sport and performance venue. Enhancing the identity and character of the original facility, the existing heritage brick stand is retained. A new PTFE roof appears to elegantly float above the courts, creating an exceptional player and spectator experience while also providing improved amenity and a sympathetic response to the neighbouring Adelaide Oval.
The project was completed on time to host the Inaugural Adelaide International in January 2020. It will facilitate the delivery of world-class experiences and sporting events for generations to come. The all-weather design solution will provide training of the state’s tennis talent, as well as community groups.
The vibrancy and energy this project brings to the Riverbank Precinct as a multipurpose space will not only improve the state’s sporting activities but also add lasting community benefit.
