Our brand-new, state-of-the-art venue seamlessly blends sophistication, versatility, and an electric atmosphere, all while being surrounded by the pulsating energy of a true sporting Mecca. Our venue is a haven for those seeking to create exceptional memories and host remarkable occasions.

The Drive is the epitome of accessibility. The surrounding area thrives with life, offering a myriad of dining options, bars, and an array of entertainment possibilities. You’ll find yourself in the midst of a bustling community, where excitement and inspiration are never far away.

The Drive has developed a unique concept that combines the thrill of music, sports, events, and functions, all under one roof. The Eastern Facility incorporates high performance training facilities, plus premium multipurpose event and function spaces. The Courtside Room is the newest function space in Adelaide and offers a premium viewing experience overlooking the East of the City to the Adelaide Hills, and the beautiful Riverbank. The connecting intimate Premier Suite can complement this space as an ideal VIP, board or smaller function space, and the undercover championship-sized tennis court’s adaptable nature allows it to be easily transformed into a multi-purpose space. Finally, the stunning new roof over the premium Sunken Show Court allows for a unique experience and will be available for hire.

With multiple function and meeting rooms available for hire, you can tailor the space to perfectly match your vision. From intimate gatherings to grand celebrations, our venue can accommodate any event, ensuring every occasion is an extraordinary one.
