Who we are


A small group of individuals formed the company Canoe Lake Leisure Limited (CLL) in 2013 to safeguard the future of the Canoe Lake grass courts when Council funding cuts resulted in an uncertain future

Along with managing and improving both the grass courts and the surrounding site, we have also built 6 top-specification artificial grass courts for all year-round play, resurfaced 2 Tarmac courts, a basketball court, and added a regulation size netball court.


We have refurbished a former ladies bowls pavilion into the now thriving Cafe Fresco, which aims to bring locally sourced and healthy options to the people of Southsea.

We have also completely re-built the tennis pavilion which now has changing facilities, a members' bar and space for a variety of community activities.
