The Barracks will provide a spectacular backdrop for spectators as they enter the
venue with views of the world-famous military base. Visitors to the venue will see the longest continuous Georgian building façade in the UK, before taking their seats to watch the sporting action.
Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) Project Sponsor, Richard Arnold, said: ‘The Shooting venue is the ODA’s final venue to start construction and will be ready to host test events next year. It will be a fitting arena for athletes during the London 2012 Games and spectators will also benefit from an excellent location that is steeped in history.’
The venue will include three enclosed ranges and three open-air ranges and is set to be completed ahead of international shooting test events next spring.
