What a spectacular venue since the refit. Great viewing for all sports. Easy to get in on non match days for a stroll to absorb the feel and character. Great Bradman Museum. The stand climb is a must

Hi there. I think your best bet might be to contact the SACA for that one. You can contact them here (08) 8300 3800. I am sure they will tell when the shade comes out.
