  The future ELENA ring at CERN will decelerate the AD antiproton beam further from 5.3 MeV to 100 keV kinetic energy, to increase the efficiency of antiproton trapping. At present there are four experimental areas in the AD hall which will be complemented with the installation of ELENA by additional three experiments and an additional source for commissioning. This paper describes the optimisation of the transfer line geometry, ring rotation and source position. The optics of the transfer lines and error studies to define field and alignment tolerances are shown, and the optics particularities of electrostatic elements and their optimisation highlighted.
