Basketball Arena

The Basketball Arena was a temporary venue situated in the north of the Olympic Park.  It shared 'back of house' area with the Velopark to make the most efficient use of space and resources.  During the Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Basketball Arena hosted Basketball, Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Rugby and Handball, and the Handball Competition finals. The Arena had a capacity for 12,000 during the Olympic Games and 10,000 during the Paralympic Games. The Basketball Arena was completed in June 2011.
