“Love the tennis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

The tennis is always a wonderful experience. My only complaint this year was that we were seated in front of the corporate boxes which had the windows fully opened. While we were focused on the game, those in the boxes were more interested in drinking. The more they drank, the louder they got. Put a dampener on the experience. Try to get seats elsewhere.

“Rod Laver Arena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The tour was very well conducted by the young chap who took us thought the Arena. Great to walk down the champion walk to main court. go to the corperate boxes and Media room and look down on the court mens change room and was shownen which lockers was Roger Federra.
The diappointing part is there is no sign about the tours with costs are where to go and get tickets. This was our first time there so had to find the main entrance to the building.. At the counter no signs to let you know this is where you purchase your tickets. . After we got our tickets we went out side and took some photes and had a chap from over seas ask where to go
. I would recomend anyone to go and have a look. We really enjoyed it.

“Awesome !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I have been to Rod Laver for two concerts and the Tennis on Centre Court. The venue is world class and a pleasure to be in. It is so well organised when entering and exiting the venue with minimal delays. Last visit was Feb 2013 for Keith Urban Concert !

“Really just a walk through”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It was unfortunate that this was our second attempt to visit this facility. Last time it was closed entirely, this time the arena was closed in preparation for a concert. Our tour was basically a walk around with a pleasant guide. He shared his knowledge but it just seemed to be mostly walking. You visit the lockers, press room and walk the corridor they all use prior to coming into centre court. It may have been better to at least open the door and let us look in rather than nothing. A least we were told before taking the tour that the arena was closed and therefore the price was reduced.
