Zoo Lake Sports Club has a proud sporting history dating back to the 1940's.  In decades past, the Cricket and Football teams were a formidable force to be reckoned with within Johannesburg and further afield!

After a number of years of being neglected due to municipal financial restraints, Zoo Lake Sports Club was revived in 2008 by two young sporting enthusiasts and it is slowly regaining its rightful place amidst sports facilities in Egoli.  Cricket and Soccer are obviously still popular at our club, but we also have a number of other disciplines available - In 2 Touch Rugby (including mixed leagues), LMS 20-20 Cricket, Walk For Life, Rockies Road Runners, Youth To Pro Junior Soccer Coaching and Zoo Lake Junior Football Club to name but a few.  

We have just over 23 000 square metres of open fieldspace available to hire for a myriad of activities and Zoo Lake Sports Club has - to date - hosted everything from fly-fishing demonstrations, lazer tag parties, and climbing walls to croquet, volleyball and even giant inflatable challenges!  Due to our central location and ease of access from major roads and transport hubs, Zoo Lake Sports Club is also an ideal choice for team-building, family fundays and corporate sports days.  

We pride ourselves on being a community-based club with facilities which are accessible to all.  Please feel free to directly contact one of the myriad of leagues which take place on a weekly basis or - should you wish to book field space on a private basis - please contact our club booking office on:
