Match Day Information

Bodyline Bar

A SACA Members' exclusive bar in the western stand which channels the feel of the Long Room at Lord's, while tipping its cap to the infamous Bodyline Series in 1933 between Australia and England.


 

It's Great Gatsby '30s meets modern day cricket.

With historic cricketing memorabilia throughout, the bar was an instant hit with our Members when it opened just in time for the first ball of the Ashes Test in December 2017. With panoramic views of the Adelaide Oval, the Bodyline Bar brings a historic feel with rare memorabilia from the infamous Bodyline Series which it pays homage to, quality finishings, exceptional service and beverages served in glass rather than plastic.

The Bodyline Bar is located at northern end of the western stand on Level 2.
