Eton Manor complete as 200 day Paralympic countdown begins

Eton Manor, the only venue designed to be solely used for the Paralympic competition, has been completed after two years of construction, the Olympic Delivery Authority has announced.

The announcement came on Friday on the eve of the beginning of the 200 day countdown to the Paralympic Games.

Eton Manor is in the north of the Olympic Park and will witness 112 Paralympic athletes competing for six medals in wheelchair tennis. It is a 10,500 capacity venue.

The venue will also provide temporary facilities for Aquatics training during the Olympics.

After the Games it will be converted into a multi-sport facility for the local community.

The venue has been built on the site of an old sports club with Olympic ties. It was the base of the old Eton Manor Sports Club, founded at the beginning of the 20th century, which had Olympians among its former members. Part of the running track used in the last London Olympic Games was transferred there after the 1948 Games.
