About: Eton Manor is to play host to the Paralympic Archery and Wheelchair Tennis, and is located on the northern end of the Olympic Park.

It is thanks to the Games that the old Eton Manor sports centre, which has not been in use since 2001, is being revived. It has been already been demolished and the area is now being cleared and prepared for the new construction.

Previously a community sports centre, Eton Manor will be transformed by architect Stanton Williams to create a range of sporting facilities.

Construction will start in 2010 so the venue will be ready to test events before the start of the Games. In addition to the Paralympic archery, the venue is to be used as a training area for athletes.

After the Games, the venue will be one of the sports facilities that athletes and the local community can use. It will be turned into a Hockey stadium, an Indoor Tennis centre and a five-a-side Football venue.
