|Margaret Court Arena - Austadiums|
Margaret Court Arena at Melbourne Park opened with Rod Laver Arena in 1988 as Show Court One. The venue underwent a major redevelopment which was completed in late-2014. The work included increasing capacity from 6,000 to 7,500 (and new blue seats), a retractable roof which is the fastest of its kind in the world - opening and closing in just five minutes, corporate facilities, video screens, sound system and new spectator facilities. In addition to Tennis, Margaret Court Arena can now host Basketball, Netball and Concerts. Melbourne United (NBL) and Melbourne Vixens (ANZ Championship) both play home matches at the revamped venue.
