Olympic Park Eton Manor


Olympic Park, London, E20 3ET

Perhaps the lowest profile of the Park's new, permanent constructions, this venue is on the site of the early 20th-century Eton Manor Sports Club, which had fallen into disuse by 2001. For the Games themselves, it will contain three 50m training pools for the Swimming and smaller pools for the other Aquatics disciplines, as well as a 5,000-capacity show court set aside for the Wheelchair Tennis.

Memorials to sportsmen from the original club who died in World War I and II, moved off-site during construction, will return once work is complete - and remain here after the Games, when Eton Manor will become a sports centre with facilities for tennis, hockey and five-a-side football.

Location: In the most northerly section of the Olympic Park
