Caspari said that the site itself has room for an additional 45 tennis courts worth of usable space, and plans to construct the extra space based on customer interest.

The site is situated in Eastern Creek in Sydney's western suburbs. Caspari said the site is being built with the aim of achieving a 30- to 50-year shelf life for the centre.
