Venue Information

The Pickaquoy has three glass-backed courts, identical to those featured at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, with retractable walls allowing two double courts to be created. There are also two spectator areas – a seating area directly in front of the centre court and a balcony overhead that gives spectators a great view of all the action.

Training and Warm-Up Information

Courts will be made available prior to the competition commencing for practice and training sessions.


Only approved WSF balls will be used throughout the competition and will be provided. Regulation eye-wear must be worn for all double events and is expected to be provided by the competitor.
