Rod Laver Arena Venue Information
The Australian Open typically has very high ticket purchases, second only to the US Open. It was the first Grand Slam tournament to feature indoor play during wet weather or extreme heat with its two primary courts, the Rod Laver Arena and Hisense Arena, equipped with retractable roofs.
The event has championships for men’s and women’s singles, as well as men’s, women’s doubles and mixed doubles. It also hosts juniors, exhibition and legend competitions.
For the night session, Rod Laver Arena doors will not be opened for patron access before 6:30 pm for 7:00 pm sessions, and 7:00 pm for 7:30 pm sessions, or less than 30 minutes after the conclusion of the day session, whichever is later.
Rod Laver Arena
The National Tennis Centre was officially opened in 1988, with the first tennis ball hit in January 1988 at the first Australian Open to be held at the venue.
Steffi Graf and Mats Wilander became the inaugural singles champions, at a tournament witnessed by 266,436 fans – double the previous year’s attendance at Kooyong.
Variously known as ‘Flinders Park’, the ‘National Tennis Centre’ or ‘Centre Court’, the venue was renamed Rod Laver Arena on 16 January 2000, in recognition of Rod Laver’s remarkable tennis career that saw him achieve the Grand Slam twice and cement himself as Australia’s and one of the world’s greatest ever male tennis champions.
