Built by Theiss Constructions at a cost of $65m, Hisense Arena was completed in 2000. The venue extended Melbourne Park and its capacity to handle ever increasing tennis crowds, whilst also satisfying demand for another flexible multi purpose venue. This state-of-the-art indoor/outdoor facility can host a variety of sports, including basketball, tennis, boxing, gymnastics, dancesports and cycling in its own velodrome. A world class entertainment venue, Hisense Arena also holds an eclectic range of music concerts, family orientated performances, seminars and dance parties.
Parking is available at Yarra Park (MCG) on most event days or at the Melbourne Park carpark on Olympic Boulevard (via Entrance D). See https://prebook.mopt.vic.gov.au/ for details and prebooking (recommended).

The Victorian State School Spectacular was brilliant and held here in September. Formally Hisense arena. Really good venue. Seating was great, stage set up was good. Food is at venue prices. Facilities were clean with easy access. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The only suggestion is that when booking seating online, seats need to be identified a little better.
The venue is great and the tennis always excellent. It's lost it's feel as the "people's court" with the best seats now only available for large cost. I fear slowly, this will continue to grow leaving the "people" with only outside courts.
