With the installation of nearly 3,500 individual red seats, the main court of the Estadio Nacional continues to take important steps to be ready for the Pan American and Parapan American Games.
The renovated venue, where conventional tennis (from October 23rd to 29th) and wheelchair tennis (from November 19th to 25th) competitions will be held, will have 10 courts for the continental competition. In June, these courts were covered in brick dust.
The three-time Olympic medalist and ambassador of Santiago 2023, Fernando González, referred to the new look of the venue that dates back to 1975. “For as long as I can remember, it’s the first big stadium that I visited and it’s a place that is very important for any Chilean tennis player. The remodeling was long overdue, it makes me very happy, and hopefully the history the venue has will be preserved and respected,” he said.
The Centro Deportivo del Tenis will have five competition courts at the Games: Court Central, with seating for 3,352 spectators; a Grandstand, with 1,270 seats; and three preliminary courts with stands for an average of 300 people. The courts will have LED lighting ranging from 1,200 to 2,000 lux and a modern drainage system. In addition, there will be another five training courts, also equipped with artificial lighting; and after the event, another four courts will be set up to complete a total of 14.
