Tough old arena postcard!!!

Wembley Arena is an indoor arena, at Wembley, in the London Borough of Brent, England. The building is opposite Wembley Stadium. It was built for the 1934 Empire Games, by Arthur Elvin and originally housed a swimming pool, as reflected by its former name, Empire Pool. The pool itself was last used for the 1948 Summer Olympics. The building is used for music, comedy and family entertainment and for sport. Music predominates, as the arena doesn't currently have a tenant sports team.

The Wembley Lions and Wembley Monarchs were two ice hockey teams that used the venue regularly during the 1940s, 50s and 60s, while the London Lions used the venue for a season in the 1970s. Wembley also hosted the British Hockey League play-off finals weekend at the end of each season up until the league's disbandment in 1996. The arena also playes host to NHL teams the Toronto Maple Leafs and the New York Rangers for a pair of challenge matches in 1993.

For the 2012 Summer Olympics, the venue plans to host badminton and rhythmic gymnastics events.
