Gachibowli Indoor Stadium

Gachibowli Indoor Stadium is an indoor arena located in Hyderabad, India. The capacity of the arena is 4,000 people. It is located in the Gachibowli suburb. The indoor stadium is located beside the Hyderabad International Institute of Information Technology. The venue hosted the 2009 BWF World Championships.

Central Arena[edit]

The central playing arena measures 60m by 40m in size and consists of a basketball court and six badminton courts. The indoor stadium can also host other sporting events such as taekwondo, table tennis, boxing, judo, wrestling and weight lifting.

Pedestrian Bridge[edit]

The design of the indoor stadium involves segregation of spectators' access from the access of sports-persons and officials. Four large pedestrian bridges placed at the four cardinal points allow access to the spectators directly to the stands at the up-per level. A combination of ramps and staircases lead the spectator to a height of 3m from ground level, from where a 4m wide steel-truss bridge of 12m span leads the spectators to a circumferential corridor from where they enter into the stands.
