Since its opening in October 2015, tens of thousands of visitors have attended events in the Zhuhai Hengqin International Tennis Centre in southern China. To mark the success of the project, ArchiCreation, a highly recognised professional architecture periodical in China, has released…
Zhuhai Tennis Centre is an international standard tennis facility and will host the WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai from 2015-2019.
The first stage includes a Centre Court with 5,000 seats, a match court with seating for 1500, four match courts with 250 seats each, and 12 training courts. The first stage of the Tennis Centre was completed in September 2015 and held its first very successful tournament, the WTA Elite Trophy, in November 2015. Zhuhai Tennis Centre is the first Centre Court built in China to have a roof and still be recognized as outdoor tennis court, protecting players and spectators from the elements.
Stage two of the project, due to start late 2016, will include a 15,000 seats tennis arena, indoor training hall, athletes’ apartments, a tennis museum and additional match courts.
The Zhuhai Tennis Centre has been designed as a green park for the community. It provides a ‘raised forest’ landscape to provide a lush environment which will be used by people during non-event days.
