description.abstract In early 1992 the Government of the State of Qatar decided to construct a new squash and tennis centre. Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Agriculture (MMAA) staff made an assessment of the centre's probable traffic generation and parking demand. When the first international tournaments began at the end of the year, the MMAA had the opportunity of surveying the actual generation and demand. This study explains how staff made the initial assessment and compares the observed with the predicted traffic figures. The paper illustrates the pattern of traffic behaviour during the tournaments and discusses aspects of the design and traffic analysis which assessors of similar major facilities could consider in the future. The forecast data for the Tennis Tournament Centre are similar to the observed values although the distribution of arrivals between accesses was different. Traffic flows at the Squash Tournament were lower than expected en_US
