Riverbank Arena & Legacy Venue

Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre

The Riverbank Arena was one of the stand-out venues on Olympic Park. Its blue artificial pitch with its pink run-off areas was nicknamed the ‘smurf turf’ and really caught the eye, particularly from the air. Its colours were chosen to reflect the colours of the London Games.

Hockey’s legacy venue at Eton Manor is expected to play host to major domestic finals, the annual Investec London Cup and other major international tournaments.  Day-to-day, it will be brought to life through community use including local hockey clubs, who have traditionally struggled to find appropriate facilities.
