Sydney University is streets ahead

Set deep within the campus of Australia’s oldest university, is the Sydney University Lawn Tennis Club. This seems a bit of an anachronism in these high tech days, but it is extremely popular amongst students there, alumni and anyone who wishes to join. It also anchors the place and reminds you that lawn tennis dates back to the late 19c when Sydney University was founded. En route to the Club though, you pass along the cross -axis which passes in front of the historic Quadrangle and lawn in front of it.

 

The campus is being developed on a precinct basis so each area has its’ own character and plan for it. The redevelopment go the Chemistry and Carslaw sites on the City Road side of the lawn are the most innovative and interactive  aspects of the development in this area.
