General Aussie Tennis News

Seeing as the QLD State Tennis Centre is due for completion later in the year, I thought I would start a thread for it, as it is the biggest development since the construction of the Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre.

When completed, the centre will have:
- 22 international standard tennis courts (16 hardcourts, 4 claycourts and 2 grasscourts)
- A 5500 seat covered Centre Court
- Administrative facilities for Tennis QLD
- Cafes, restaurants, pro shop
- A new ferry terminal
- 390 apartments in the 'Tennyson Reach' development

All in all, the centre has cost $80 million to construct.

Here are some artists impressions of the QLD Tennis Centre:











And of course, the centre will host the Brisbane International from 2009...

Here are some sites of interest:
www.tennysonreach.com
www.tennisattennyson.com
www.tennisqueensland.com

And some photos of the stadium taking shape

Site for the 2009 Brisbane International...

Pretty much covers what we already know, but check out the video I'm loving the centre court...hopefully Bernard Tomic and Isabella Holland can both play on it in the upcoming years, and there is a Fed Cup tie too

Re: Queensland State Tennis Centre

I think, for the time being, the women's is still a Tier 3, and the men's a World Series...but I think there is certainly potential for it to be a Tier 2 (like Sydney) and a Championship Series in the future (part of the reason why they moved it)

Re: Queensland State Tennis Centre

Cool! Our two number 1's wont be there next year coz they'll be in Perth which sucks.

What type of clay is it? Is it the european stuff that they keep saying we need more of??

Stosur | Dellacqua | Gajdosova | Tomljanovic | Gavrilova | Rodionova | Barty
