State Sports CentreEdit profile
The State Sports Centre is a multi-use indoor arena in Sydney, Australia. It hosted the table tennis and taekwondo events for the 2000 Summer Olympics.
With a total of 3,854 fixed and retractable seats the main arena is the focal point of the Sydney Olympic Park Sports Centre. An additional 1,152 portable seats can be accommodated on the floor level.
In 1988 and 1989 the centre was the original home of NBL side the Sydney Kings before they moved to the larger Sydney Entertainment Centre. It was also home to former NBL team the West Sydney Razorbacks (later renamed the Sydney Spirit) from 1998 until the club folded in 2009. The Sydney Sandpipers netball team who played in the Commonwealth Bank Trophy called the venue home and since 2008 it has been the home venue for the New South Wales Swifts netball team who play in the ANZ Championship.Reference
