The Broadmeadow Basketball Stadium, also known as the Newcastle Sports Entertainment Centre, is an indoor basketball stadium located in Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia and was the original home of the Newcastle Falcons of the National Basketball League from the origin of the league in 1979 until they moved to the newly built Newcastle Entertainment Centre from the 1992 season.

The stadium hosted the 1982 NBL Grand Final where the West Adelaide Bearcats defeated the Geelong Supercats 80-74.[1][2] The staging of an NBL game in Newcastle without the Falcons playing was possible due to the NBL's original policy of awarding the then single game Grand Final to a pre-determined venue regardless of the teams playing.

It is currently the home of the Basketball Association of Newcastle and can hold approximately 2,000 spectators.
