The central playing arena measures 60 metres by 40 metres in size and consists of a basketball court and six badminton courts. The indoor stadium can also host other sporting events such as kabaddi, taekwondo, table tennis, boxing, judo, wrestling and weight lifting.
The design of the indoor stadium involves segregation of spectators' access from the access of sports-persons and officials. Four large pedestrian bridges placed at the four cardinal points allow access to the spectators directly to the stands at the up-per level. A combination of ramps and staircases lead the spectator to a height of 3m from ground level, from where a 4m wide steel-truss bridge of 12m span leads the spectators to a circumferential corridor from where they enter into the stands.
