Project summary

The State Basketball Centre in South Australia is a state-of-the-art facility that serves as a centre of excellence for high-performance sports programs. It offers four courts, including an International Basketball Federation (FIBA) Level 1-rated show court, and combines the needs of elite and community sports. In addition, the Centre transforms during the Royal Adelaide Show to host dog competitions and exhibitions and provides key sensory and inclusive support facilities for show visitors. The Centre’s barrier-free design provides inclusive, adaptable facilities that promote diversity and participation in sports, regardless of abilities or limitations. The facade interprets a basketball game’s rhythm and highlights the heritage values of the brickwork throughout the showgrounds. The State Basketball Centre is a valuable resource for the state, promoting excellence in sports and inclusive facilities for community groups.

The State Basketball Centre (SBC) is an investment in community and wellbeing, belonging and social connection. It’s far more than infrastructure; the SBC provides a place and platform for sport to shape and positively influence lives. We can provide a safe, clean and comfortable space in the dedicated sensory room, Changing Places and universal access facilities for our visitors, ensuring everyone can have a great day at the Show.
