University of the Sunshine Coast’s $15 million indoor Sports Stadium (USC Stadium) located at the Sippy Downs campus is a boutique venue which is home to the Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) premiership-winning Lightning.
As well as using the facility as its primary training base, the Club will play all seven home games at the Stadium in 2018. With a capacity of 2,200, each and every spectator has a close-up view of the action in what has become a fortress for the SSN inaugural champion.
The venue has two sets of retractable seats totalling 2,042 plus corporate seating. The retractable seating is stored (retracted) at either end of the Stadium allowing for all three netball courts to be use when required. When in place for game/event day, the seating extends over courts 1 and 3, to enable court 2 as a show court.
When not in use by the Club, USC, school and community sporting events take place. The national standard facility includes: 3 netball, basketball and volleyball courts; 4 badminton courts; 1 international-sized futsal court; timber sports thrust floor; 6 large toilet/changeroom areas; a total floor size of 3,705 square metres; air-conditioning; two retractable tiered seating units with a capacity of 2,042 seats; broadcast-quality lighting; 1 netball-specific drop-in court; and corporate box
