Sports and leisure

Havant’s Sport & Physical Activity Alliance (SPAA) was established in 2006, to provide local, strategic alliances of partners with an interest in sport and/or physical activity.

Members of Havant’s SPAA are made up of organisations within Havant who have a direct interest in the physical outcomes of sport, as well as partners who are concerned with the wider benefits and outcomes that sport has to offer.

The SPAA group meets biannually. Meetings provide a good opportunity for organisations to work closely with other SPAA partners, providing time to share project ideas and good work practices.

Havant SPAA is made up of key local organisations with an interest in sport and physical activity. Members currently include;

  • Havant Borough Council
  • Energise Me (Hampshire’s Active Partnership)
  • Havant Borough Sports Association
  • Active Communities Network (ACN)
  • Horizon Leisure Trust
  • Innovations Fitness
  • Park Community School
  • Havant Academy
  • Havant and South Downs College (HSDC)
  • Hampshire Football Association
  • County Sport Association/bodies and many more.

It is free to become a SPAA member. If you think that your organisation can add to the group or if you would like to know more, please email
