London Olympics Water Polo ArenaLocation: By the main entrance of the Olympic Park opposite the Aquatic Centre
Event: Water Polo
Temporary venue to be taken down after the Games

Shaped like a giant wedge of cheddar cheese, the 6,000-capacity Water Polo Arena is one of the temporary venues inside the Olympic Park and is located next door to the Aquatics Centre by the main entrance at Stratford. Work started on the Arena in spring 2011 and is expected to be ready in time for the test events in May 2012. The venue, with its distinctive silver wrap and inflatable ribbed roof made from recyclable plastic, contains a 37m-long competition pool and a slightly smaller warm-up pool. The Water Polo Arena will host the men's and women's Water Polo events during the Games and it will share some back-of-house facilities - such as broadcasting space, catering and security - with the larger Aquatics Centre underneath the main concourse which separates the two venues. After the Games, the Arena will be taken down with elements expected to be reused or relocated elsewhere in the UK.
