SportsDock at UEL’s Docklands Campus is a major new development for East London’s communities, offering top of the range facilities at an affordable price. While Team USA used SportsDock as their training headquarters for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, residents still used the £21million sports facility complete with fitness centre, strength and conditioning room, two outdoor 3G five-a-side football pitches, indoor arenas, dance studios and sports cafe – all before the athletes arrived.
