Olympics 2012: Handball Arena



One of the Olympics venues that will be public access after 2012

Location: Waterden Road, Olympic Park, Stratford

Description: The Handball Arena will be the venue for Handball, Goalball and the Fencing discipline of Modern Pentathlon during the London 2012 Games.

The venue features more than 3,000sq m of external copper cladding mostly recycled to give it a distinctive appearance that will develop a rich natural colour as it ages.

Spectators will enter directly on to the concourse level that encircles the building. This concourse level is glazed, which will enable visitors to the Olympic Park to view the sport taking place inside, and illuminate the venue when lit at night.

After the Games the Handball Arena will be adapted to become a multi-use sports centre for community use, athlete training and small- to medium-sized events.

It will be able to cater for a wide range of indoor sports, including basketball, handball, badminton, boxing, martial arts, netball, table tennis, wheelchair rugby and volleyball. It will also include a health and fitness club with changing facilities and a cafe for use by the local community.
