London Olympics: Wembley ArenaEvents: Badminton, Rhythmic Gymnastics

The popular live music and comedy venue in north-west London will host the Badminton and Rhythmic Gymnastic events at London 2012. Although nowadays more synonymous with Take That and Michael McIntyre, Wembley Arena is often used for large sporting events such as boxing. In fact, the venue was originally built in 1934 to host the Empire Games (forerunner of the Commonwealth Games) and it also hosted the Swimming events in the 1948 Games in London. Little will need to be done to the venue for its two sports during the Games - and Wembley Arena is the host of the Badminton World Championships in August 2011, which will act as a test event for London 2012. Around 6,000 spectators will be able to enjoy the action during the Olympic Badminton (Saturday 28 July to Sunday 5 August) and Rhythmic Gymnastics (Thursday 9 to Sunday 12 August) competitions.
