I love this venue for the tennis - so easy to walk in and out of the CBD or get a tram! Also great for concerts - so close to town.

If you don't have tickets to the Tennis - don't despair! you can get a ticket (much cheaper) and enjoy all the entertainment in within the grounds - bands, food, drinks, entertainment and the tenni son big screens - never a dull moment
