NSW Tennis Centre is a tennis venue at the Sydney Olympic Park in Sydney, Australia. The centre was built in 1999 and hosted the tennis events for the 2000 Summer Olympics. Also, each year since 2000, it hosts the Sydney International tournament, played in January, just before the Australian Open.


The centre court is called "Ken Rosewall Arena", in honour of the Sydney tennis player and multiple Grand Slam Ken Rosewall, and it holds 10,000 people. There are also two other show courts seating 4,000 and 2,000, as well as seven other match courts, and six practice courts.
