Show Court Arena (provisional title) is an open-air and under-construction tennis stadium located in Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The arena is currently undergoing construction and is due to open in advance of the 2022 Australian Open. Upon completion it will seat 5,000 spectators and be the fourth-largest tennis venue at Melbourne Park.
In April 2017, the Victorian Government announced it would proceed with the third and final stage of the ongoing redevelopment of the Melbourne Park sporting and entertainment precinct, which had begun in 2010. The construction of Show Court Arena was the most prominent component of this redevelopment stage, which came at an overall cost of $271.5 million. The arena is situated on the site of the old Eastern Courts 16-23, between Rod Laver Arena and John Cain Arena, and slightly to the north of the large public grassed area known as "Grand Slam Oval" during the Australian Open. Demolition of the old courts and the adjacent function and broadcast centre (which itself was demolished and replaced with an upgraded facility) commenced in April 2019.
