Sporting Facilities:

Facility Icon The Stadium

The world was transfixed by the events held in the Olympic Stadium in 2012. From Danny Boyle’s spectacular opening ceremony to Usain Bolt’s 100m Olympic record – and not forgetting Team GB’s Super Saturday exploits – the venue has already had its fair share of memorable moments in its short life.

Post-Games, the future is just as exciting. Now home to Premier League West Ham United, the Stadium continues to be used for major international athletics competitions, but there’s more. The world’s top music stars are also vying to hold concerts at this iconic arena.

Facility Icon Aquatics Centre

Not everybody can boast having a bona fide Olympic swimming pool in their neighbourhood – but Chobham Manor residents can.

Open to the local community and schools, The Aquatics Centre has two 50m pools and a 25m diving pool, all of which have moveable floors to adjust the depth.

The centre caters for all levels of swimming ability and aquatic disciplines with an activity programme including aquatic fitness sessions, a comprehensive learn to swim programme, water polo coaching, synchronised swimming, diving, triathlon and sub aqua classes.

With a spectator capacity of 3,500, the centre can host major national and international events and is also a training base for athletes.

Facility Icon Copper Box Arena

The Copper Box Arena is a multi-sport arena for community use, athlete training, events and entertainment.

British Basketball League top-flight outfit the London Lions were quick to take advantage of its world-class facilities, relocating to the Copper Box Arena 2013.

The arena is a multi-purpose sport and entertainment venue where the public can play basketball, wheelchair basketball, handball, volleyball, netball, judo, fencing, table tennis, badminton, gymnastics and taekwondo.

The third largest arena in the capital, the Copper Box Arena is also able to host concerts, shows, conferences and exhibitions, alongside a programme of major sporting events.

Facility Icon Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre

Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre boasts four indoor and six outdoor tennis courts, two hockey pitches and five-a-side football pitches, alongside a £30 million state-of-the-art clubhouse with changing facilities, a bar and social areas.

The home venue for England and Great Britain’s national hockey sides, the 3,000-seater stadium’s first major international event was the 2015 European Hockey Championships.

The Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre courts are also used as a wheelchair tennis performance centre and for regional tennis development programmes. All of these facilities are available for the public to enjoy.

Facility Icon Lee Valley Velopark

Bordering Chobham Manor, the Lee Valley VeloPark is arguably the best cycling facility on the planet. It offers track cycling, mountain bike trails, road cycling and a BMX track – all of which are open to the public.

The British Cycling Federation uses the 6,000-capacity velodrome to train athletes with international potential, and it is also available for hire by schools, clubs and community groups, plus for casual users who just wish to pay and play.

A cyclist’s dream, the VeloPark also houses a dedicated bike workshop, secure bike storage, bike hire facilities and bike retail space.

COMMERCIAL AND
INTERNATIONAL
DISTRICTS

The previous Olympic Press and Broadcast Centres at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park have become Here East, a new commercial district and leading centre for technology and design.

The digital hub will harness innovation and creativity in east London with a community focus including a conference centre and a pedestrian square for broadcasting major sporting events, along with cafes, restaurants and bars.

SHOP/EAT/DRINK
AND BE ENTERTAINED

If you’re in need of retail therapy – or just a good day or night out – then you won’t have to venture too far from home.

Westfield Stratford City has already become the lifestyle destination of choice for millions of Londoners, and Chobham Manor residents are lucky enough to be just a short stroll from its 250 shops and 70 places to eat and drink – not forgetting its 17-screen all-digital Vue Cinema, luxury bowling centre and casino.

GREEN AND
PLEASANT LAND

You’ll never be far from beautifully landscaped green open spaces at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Chobham Manor is bordered by the North Park, with its wild landscapes, quiet places to relax and large-scale adventure playground.

The South Park Plaza will be transformed into a 21st century twist on London’s tradition of pleasure gardens. It’s famous for its ever-changing programme of events and attractions, as much as a place to stroll and soak up the atmosphere.

The banks of the waterways running through the park provide the perfect spot to sit and relax, as rowers and canoeists pass by.

Chobham Manor itself is characterised by three large green spaces running through the heart of the development, plus a series of smaller open spaces, squares, recreational areas and greens.
