The renovation project involves four major areas – main arena, functional competition service rooms, tennis court for news broadcast, and comprehensive building. Up to now the renovation of the main arena has almost completed and will be reviewed in March according to the plan. The renovation of the main structure of the comprehensive building has completed. The whole project will be finished in June according to the plan.
The venue takes on a new look
The flooring in the venue has been upgraded into professional wooden sports flooring meeting the demands of international competitions, the same as that for NBA matches. It is worth mentioning that the elastic rubber layers among the underlying joists have been improved, improving the shock absorption ability of the flooring by over 53%, which meets the sports standard for international competitions. It will greatly ease the strong impact athletes generate while moving around the court vigorously.

The renovation project, focusing on “recycle”, embodies the idea of “Hosting the Asian Games in a frugal way”. Renovation will be made in 7 aspects, including the volleyball courts, facilities of audience zone, functional competition rooms, professional competition system, media and broadcast zone, security system, and supporting facilities. The arena will perfectly meet the demands of Asian Games competitions after the renovation.
