Wheelchair Tennis

 

Disused since 2001, the early 20th-century Eton Manor Sports Club has been reinvigorated and given a new lease of life thanks to the Games. The 5,000 show court will be at the centre of the Wheelchair Tennis events, and there will be a further 5,000 seats around eight other competition courts and four warm-up courts.

 
 

The venue

 

Although the only event it will host during London 2012 is the Wheelchair Tennis during the Paralympics, the venue has been equipped with temporary training pools for participants in the Aquatics disciplines.
