NSW Tennis Centre is a tennis venue in Sydney, Australia. The centre was built in 1999. It hosted the tennis events for the 2000 Summer Olympics. Also, each year since 2000, it hosts the Sydney International tournament, played in January, just before the Australian Open.

Facilities[edit]

The centre court is called "Ken Rosewall Arena", in honour of the Australian tennis player Ken Rosewall, and it holds 10,000 people. There are also two other show courts seating 4000 and 2000, as well as seven other match courts, and six practice courts.
