The LSRC supplies the facility but does not run any sports itself. User groups use the facilities on a paying basis. Any income derived from revenue and fundraising goes entirely towards the operational and capital expenditure requirements of the facilities.
The management committee consists of Trustees which represents the three main user groups of cricket, soccer and tennis, and three principal officers.
