OAW Indoor Sports Complex reopens in New Berlin after roof collapse

The main entrance to the OAW Indoor Sports Complex carries the name of the sponsor, Orthopaedic Associates of Wisconsin, which signed a 10-year naming rights deal early in 2021. The 153,000-square-foot facility is New Berlin is along Racine Avenue and National Avenue.

NEW BERLIN – Nearly six months since a river of rainwater sent its roof crashing down, the OAW Indoor Sports Complex has fully reopened to the public after weathering more delays.

As its first order of business, the New Berlin complex’s ownership group sought to ensure any wary guests that the facility, 5330 S. Racine Ave., is physically fit and safe after months of revamping a roof system that failed in early July, just nine months after the complex’s grand opening.

“Rest assured that Ethic, and its partners, have taken appropriate action to repair the roof and prevent a situation like this from happening again,” Ethic Indoor LLC said in a Facebook post announcing the complex’s reopening on Dec. 29.

In the post, Ethic also said it would not provide further details about the recent roof problems, citing the prospective legal claims.
