The Copper Box Arena is a multi-sport venue in the Hackney Wick area of Hackney and was used for the 2012 Summer Olympics, located in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, England.

Previously known as the Handball Arena, it was renamed because, aside from handball, it hosted modern pentathlon (fencing, shooting, swimming, horse jumping and running) during the Olympics and was the goalball venue for the 2012 Summer Paralympics.

  • Cool area, nice facilities. Staff were polite and helpful. I went to play basketball this evening and it was the first time I’ve ever been to Copper Box. Got a little lost whilst driving due to the construction work going on, so look out for diversion signs! Parking is £2 for every hour or £45 for the day. Located behind the gym. Pay for parking inside, as the machine outside is broken.
  • Good view from most seats. Seating is hard plastic but has plenty of room in all directions. Not so keen on rule you can't take food or drink in (although theoretically you're allowed an empty bottle). Little choice of food or drink, and soft drink/water bottles handed over with cap removed.
