Eton Manor is located within the Lee Valley regional park on the former site of a community sports centre, but has remained disused since 2001. The site will be transformed to provide a range of sporting facilities in the north of the Olympic park adapted to accommodate different uses across Olympic, Paralympic and legacy modes.
The Eton Manor site will also include a mixture of both temporary and permanent buildings to meet the ODA’s commitments to sustainable design.
During Olympic mode, the site will provide temporary facilities for gymnastics and aquatics athlete training.
During Paralympic mode, the site will host the Paralympic archery and Paralympic tennis events programme. The site will include a Paralympic archery field with temporary seating for 3,000 spectators and 9 competition tennis courts with temporary seating for 10,500 spectators.
During legacy mode, the site will provide a high standard flexible sporting legacy including a hockey centre, tennis facilities and other multi-purpose sports facilities.
As well as the new sporting facilities, the ODA will also be building two new land bridges to better connect Eton Manor with the surrounding area.
Chairman of the ODA, John Armitt said: "The Eton Manor site is steeped in sporting history and we want to recapture this and regenerate the area with well designed, world-class facilities fit for the Olympic and Paralympic stage. The ODA is looking forward to taking this very exciting project to the next level."
