Add:5500 Yuanjiang Rd, Qizhong Village
The Qizhong Tennis Center is a crowning achievement in the development of Qizhong Village. The village in Maqiao Town was once a barren no-man’s land prior to the 1980s. By the middle 1990s, it had become one of the richest villages in China and a model for rural development.
The tennis arena, officially named the Shanghai Qizhong Forest Sports City Tennis Center, was designed by Japanese architect Mitsuru Senda. It is in the shape of a magnolia, the city flower of Shanghai. The center court has capacity to hold 15,000 spectators.
The site of the world-class tennis tournament has first-class courts and support facilities. Covering an area of 339,000 square meters, the tennis center has 18 indoor and outdoor courts.
