The stadium - one of 53 sporting venues for the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games - is the only newly built stadium located in Hangzhou city proper and will host the table tennis competition.

Officials said that's what it was designated as a national sports centre in Hangzhou.

The stadium, which covers about 21,000 square metres, will be able to hold 7,000 spectators, over a total of three floors.

The roof grids were divided into 15 units assembled on ground and it took three months to hoist and assemble the grids using temporary supports, according to Su Fangsheng, project manager of the Grand Canal Asian Games Park.
