Great Britain enjoyed an impressive haul of medals at the recent Olympic Games in Tokyo, winning a total of 65 medals, 22 of which were golds. Following the closing ceremony and with the Paralympics to look forward to on 24th August, have you been inspired to get active and sporty?
Luckily for homeowners at Stratford Mill and those living in East Stratford, home of the 2012 Olympics, the area offers a plethora of sports venues on the doorstep, not to mention parks and cycle paths for some more gentle activity:
There is almost no sport or activity that you cannot do at the various sports centres dotted around the Lee Valley. Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre, in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, offers tennis sessions for beginners up to advanced players and for children and adults. If you are looking to get into hockey the centre can advise on which of the clubs would be best suited to your needs.
If water sports are more your thing the London Aquatics Centre is an outstanding facility. There are three state-of-the-art pools, each offering something for every level of fitness and ability. There are open swimming sessions if you just want to lane swim at your own pace or a variety of training swimming sessions and diving pool sessions for those who want to channel their inner Tom Daly.
White Water Centre
For the thrill seekers there’s the Lee Valley White Water Centre where you can white water raft down the Olympic course. Canoeing and Kayaking courses are available for all abilities, you can explore paddleboarding or go full throttle with hydrospeeding. Pretty much every other water sport in between is also available to try out.
Stratford Padel Centre
Padel may not yet be an Olympic sport, but it is growing in popularity so be sure to get ahead of the curve at Stratford Padel Centre. With many of the skills of tennis and squash being transferable, now is the time to give this different type of racquet sport a go!
