The 2017 Aegon Southsea Trophy is a brand new ITF Pro-Circuit women’s $100K+ event held at Canoe Lake Leisure. It is free to attend!
The tournament will act as a ‘warm-up’ for many of the world’s top players before moving onto The Championships, Wimbledon, the following week.
The Main Draw Singles Event starts on Tuesday 27 June and, weather permitting, culminates with the Finals on Friday 30 June.
Canoe Lake Leisure was formed in 2013 to safeguard the future of the Canoe Lake grass tennis courts when funding cuts resulted in an uncertain future. Along with managing and improving both the grass courts and the surrounding site, CLL have also built 4 top-specification artificial grass courts for all year-round play, resurfaced 2 hard courts, a basketball court and added a regulation size netball court. A former bowls pavilion has been refurbished into the thriving Greens Cafe, which brings locally sourced and healthy options to the people of Southsea. A modern and unique pavilion complete with roof terrace overlooking the grass courts completes this philanthropic project.
