The first rate facilities at the £30million Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre include two hockey pitches, four indoor tennis courts and six outdoor courts, available to the public throughout the day and evening, all year round. A state of the art clubhouse offers changing rooms, bar and areas to relax and socialise.
Having hosted the Wheelchair Tennis at the 2012 Games, Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre will continue to promote and serve the sport, providing coaching and facilities for local and national players. It will host a string of events – the first is the London Investec Cup, one of Britain’s highest profile hockey tournaments, followed by the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Masters from 2014-16 and the 2015 EuroHockey Championships.
The centre will also host the European Hockey Championships in 2015, the Women’s Champions Event in 2016, the Men’s World League Round 3 in 2017 and the Hockey Women’s World Cup in 2018.
Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre will encourage local players and beginners to hone their skills in an inspiring environment of excellence and expertise, which includes a 3,000-seat hockey stadium with the flexibility to increase capacity to 15,000 for big competitions.
