Canoe Lake Leisure & Greens Café

Canoe Lake Leisure is a philanthropic venture with community at its heart, offering four high-performance floodlit all-weather tennis courts, two hard tennis courts, basketball and netball courts, and Greens Café, serving fresh and locally-sourced food all year round.

The site also features The Pavilion, a for-hire multi-use space with a kitchen equipped for event catering, a large studio with a mobile partition, a first-floor bar and terrace accommodating hot and cold drinks, and more.

Canoe Lake Leisure’s tennis courts are open to all, whether or not you’re a member, and are priced per court per hour. Ball and racquet rental is free of charge.

There’s a Canoe Lake membership available, too, which entitles you to:

  • Free unlimited use of courts and floodlights
  • The ability to book the courts 10 days in advance
  • Significant discounts on group and private coaching and mix-ins
  • The chance to play team tennis against other clubs
  • Free entry into Wimbledon ticket ballots

Greens Café is nestled right next to Canoe Lake — they use organic, locally-sourced produce where possible, to service the community with delicious fresh food. All dishes are homemade, and there are options for vegetarians, vegans, and special dietary needs. Greens Café opens from 9:30am to 5:00pm every day.
