Olympics 2012: Basketball Arena



The stunning temporary Olympics 2012 Basketball Arena.

Location: Olympic Park, Stratford

Description: During the London 2012 Games, the temporary Basketball Arena will host Basketball, Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Rugby and the final stages of the Handball competition.

Construction on the Basketball Arena began in October 2009, with work to erect the 1,000-tonne steel frame starting in March 2010.

Construction was completed within budget in June 2011, and it is one of the largest-ever temporary venues built for any Games.

After the Games, the Basketball Arena will be taken down and parts are expected to be reused or relocated elsewhere in the UK.
