HOW WE GOT TO OUR HAPPY PLACE...
Award Leisure is the prodigy of our past and the foundation for our future.
A family owned and run business which first began back in 1984, almost 40 years ago, a father and two sons, with their own moulds and ideas started selling garden ornaments. The family business consistently grew through ambition, strong work-ethic, and personality. Along with innovation of garden leisure, technology and luxury garden commodities, the business has evolved in its offering of luxury leisure products and services over the last 30 years. In 2002, the business found its happy place and forte in premium outdoor leisure, specialising in Hot Tubs and Swim Spas.
Leading the way
The growth of Award Leisure has been led by the owner, Mark Anthony. Through his entrepreneurial flare, and passion for all things garden, he transformed the business from a local town market stall, selling garden ornaments and water features. To executing exciting projects of domestic and commercial reservoirs, full landscape and garden design, even a penguin enclosure at the Local Twycross Zoo. To much more recent success of being dubbed the UK’s No’ 1 Hot Tub and Garden Building Showroom in the UK.
Mark has always been the creative and innovator in the business, making sure Award Leisure stay on top of the market, leading in product choice, sustaining trusted and committed brand partnerships and delivering exceptional customer service.

Our First Showroom
1999 saw the birth of our first retail showroom along the A5 in Warwickshire, which is now our flagship store, displaying over 50 premium products.
Master of Our Craft
We started retailing luxury hot tubs and other outdoor leisure products. We’ve worked with many brands, learning the craft of installing, maintaining, and servicing hot tubs.
