Kotla Vijay Bhaskar Reddy Indoor Stadium is an indoor sporting arena located in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. The capacity of the arena is 2,000 people. It hosted some events for the Afro-Asian Games in 2003.

This stadium has the a lot of potential talent in the form of children who come to learn Badminton and Roller Skating.

This stadium is maintained by the Sports Authority of Telangana State (SATS), the government department which looks after the sports affairs of the State of Telangana.

Since November 2007 the stadium has opened for practice Hyderabad's biggest roller skating rink, which is a 100-metre flat track. This rink was finally built by SATS for the skaters of Mr. Abbas Iqbal Lasania who is Andhra Pradesh's first National Roller Skating (Speed) Champion and an International Coach whose students have been representing India at International Skating Competitions, both roller and ice.

The skating rink was a dream come true for the skaters of Hyderabad and it wouldn't have been possible without the persistent endeavours of one of Mr. Lasania's students' parent Mrs. Savita Reddy, whose daughter Shraddha Reddy went on to become an Asian Roller Skating Championship medallist in the year 2010 under the tutelage of Mr. Lasania.

In less than two months of the skating rink being inaugurated, Mr. Lasania's skaters from Lasania's Roller & Ice Skating Academy proved their mettle by winning two gold medals, two silver medals, and one bronze medal at the 53rd School Games Federation National Roller Skating Championship in Ahmedabad in December 2007.
