On 18 July 1982, he stadium hosted the 1982 NBL Grand Final where the West Adelaide Bearcats defeated the Geelong Supercats 80-74. The staging of an NBL game in Newcastle without the Falcons playing was possible due to the NBL's original policy of awarding the then single game Grand Final to a pre-determined venue regardless of the teams playing. The stadium also hosted the 1982 Semi-finals with West Adelaide defeating the Coburg Giants 94-74 and Geelong defeating the Nunawading Spectres 101-59. Both Semi-final games were played on 16 July.
The stadium is currently the home of the Basketball Association of Newcastle and can hold approximately 2,000 spectators.
