At the London Paralympics, the British home teams were looking to make their mark on the sport. One of the top players in the women’s team is Jessica Luke. She says the conditions in the Handball Arena are perfect. “There are really good acoustics. And there’s a real atmosphere to it.”
At the moment, the British teams get to train there once a week. Jessica says this is quite enough. The rest of the time she practises elsewhere. “I wouldn’t want to train there too much. If you’re going to the Paralympics, you don’t want the venue to feel too familiar. You want to feel it’s really special; something incredible.”
