Ballarat Sports and Events Centre

Ballarat Sports and Events Centre under construction

Project cost

This $24m project is jointly funded by the federal government ($10m) state government ($9m) and the City of Ballarat ($5m)

Estimated completion date
mid 2019


This project will see six new courts added to the existing two-court Wendouree Sports and Events Centre, making it one of the biggest facilities in the region.

The upgrades significantly change the indoor sporting experience in Ballarat, particularly through the inclusion of a new 3000-seat show court and additional courts capable of hosting a range of events including netball, basketball, volleyball and badminton.

New amenities and facilities – including female-friendly changerooms and an adult changing facility – ensure the new Sports and Events Centre will be the home of the region’s elite sporting teams, as well as many community teams.

The redevelopment will help attract major events and tournaments to Ballarat, and the facility will also be better equipped for use by non-sporting community groups.
