Margaret Court Arena


Margaret Court Arena is a tennis, sports and entertainment venue located in Melbourne Park as part of the National Tennis Centre. It was originally constructed in 1987 with a capacity of 6000 seats. A redevelopment in 2015 increased its capacity to 7500 seats.

The arena has been used for tennis matches at the Australian Open since its opening. It is also used for sports such as basketball and netball as well as a number of concerts.

The arena was renamed in 2003 after Margaret Court, Australia's most successful female tennis player thus far. Tributes to her are prominently seen as you walk around the arena.

I had the privilege of visiting Margaret Court Arena during the recent Australian Open in January. Do seize the opportunity if or when you have the chance whilst in the city of Melbourne.
