About Eton Manor

These facilities were built on the site of the old Eton Manor Sports Club, which had become disused and had fallen into disrepair. The original club had been established in the 1900s and had a reputation as an elite sporting association. The war memorial that had been located on the site and was a tribute to the men of the Eton Manor Club who had lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars, is to be retained and restored as part of the work on the site.

After the games, the intention is for Eton Manor to be transformed into a unique mix of sporting facilities for local and regional communities. It will include a tennis centre with four indoor and six outdoor courts, a hockey centre with two competition pitches and five-a-side football pitches.

Eton Manor site lies between A106/Ruckholt Road, A12/Temple Mills Road and the Temple Mills Lane. Eton Manor's association with Olympics Games is a historical one, as a part of the running track during the 1948 Games was transferred here after the Games. However, it now lies buried.
