We come most years and the centre is excellent and improves as well. The seating is easy with plenty of toilets.

The ambience of the arena is overwhelming - especially if you arrive early for the day! Not easy for older patrons to climb to one's place in the Upper Seating Area. There are npo hand rails in the seating area. View is always good - even if you have a large body in front of you. 😎

Had seats in the upper section Door 15, Row DD Seats 509/510. These were above the middle of the court. We were up high enough to get a good view and not be hindered by retaining walls, but close to the exits for food and toilets.

I love this venue for the tennis - so easy to walk in and out of the CBD or get a tram! Also great for concerts - so close to town.
