Visiting Stoke Mandeville Stadium?
Also known as the National Centre for Disability Sport, the Stoke Mandeville Stadium was developed for the Stoke Mandeville Games before the Paralympic Games was founded.
The stadium sits next door to Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury and was founded by a neurosurgeon for the National Spinal Injuries Centre at the hospital with the intention of helping rehabilitate ex-members of the British armed forces.
Since then, founder Ludwig Guttmann has also established the English Federation of Disability Sport. Queen Elizabeth II officially opened the honourable stadium in 1969.
