Project Detail

Leicester Riders Arena

Large Non-Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2016 Finalist

The 2,400-seat Arena is the new home of the Leicester Riders and Leicester Cobras Wheelchair Basketball Club.

Also a regional basketball centre of excellence, the Arena was created by a partnership including the Riders, Leicester College, Leicester City Council and Sport England. It will serve as Leicester College’s sport teaching and learning facility.

The multi-use sports venue, fully accessible by wheelchair users, is also for the local community to access its 15 badminton courts, four changing rooms and a fitness facility.

Project Overview

The new sports facility was built on the southern edges of the Grand Union Canal and is bounded by Charter Street and Memory Lane.

The two storey block contains changing rooms, showers, offices and meeting rooms. The building was designed to be contemporary but functional in appearance.

It provides three full sized basketball courts, including the show court and has more than seven metres from the court to the structural beams above.
