The first rate facilities at the £30 million 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.

The facilities are second-to-none – so much so that Tom Daley has made it his new training ground.
Centred on the iconic, award-winning, 6,000-seat velodrome, where Sir Chris Hoy and his Team GB and Paralympics GB compatriots set the London 2012 Games alight, Lee Valley VeloPark is the first place in the world where you can take part in these four types of cycling in one place.
Catering for all skill levels form beginners through to elite, anyone can cycle at Lee Valley VeloPark. You don't even need a bike - you can hire everything you need - so there's nothing stopping you from experiencing the fun of two wheels.
Try out an introduction to track cycling with a one hour session, or if you're already familiar with the velodrome track, why not go through the four-stage accreditation course? Alternatively, experience an adrenalin rush on the remodelled Olympic BMX track, with over 30 bumps, jumps and berms.
The floodlit one-mile road circuit is perfect for getting back on your bike if it's been a while. Or if you prefer to go off-road, there are 8km of traffic-free mountain bike trails on offer.
