Images released of Eton Manor’s wheelchair tennis courts

The first images have been released of Mansell Construction’s Paralympic tennis venue - the only permanent Paralympic venue in Stratford’s Olympic Park.

The Eton Manor facility will host the wheelchair tennis competitions during the games, with temporary seating for 10,500 specatators.

During the Olympic Games, the venue will provide temporary aquatic training facilities including three Olympic-size swimming pools, a synchronised swimming pool and a water polo pool.

The Stanton Williams-designed venue is on course to be completed by early next year.

John Armitt, Chairman of the ODA, said: “A huge amount has been achieved since the start of construction only eighteen months ago with work progressing on all elements of the Eton Manor project.

“It is encouraging to see this world-class Paralympic venue and important legacy facilities taking shape with the venue firmly on track to be completed on time and within budget.”

After the Games, Eton Manor will be owned, funded and managed by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority (LVRPA) and will deliver multi-purpose sport and leisure facilities.
