Payneham Oval has become a recreational destination in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters with the upgrade of six tennis courts. The tennis court upgrade follows major redevelopments of the Oval’s facilities and playground.

The upgrades not only provide modern playing facilities for the community, together with the Norwood Tennis Club and East Adelaide Payneham Tennis Club, but also increase lifespan of these valuable community assets by at least 20 years.


Demolition works commenced in mid-March 2020 with the removal of the playing surface together with fencing, kerbing and stormwater infrastructure.

The demolition phase also included the removal of internal walls and roof of the existing storeroom, shelter, barbecue facilities and drinking fountain.
