Tennis in Eastbourne - Mark Jarvis

It has never been easier to play tennis in Eastbourne with a total of 17 public tennis courts and 4 basketball courts. There's a great variety of coaching sessions and squads for all abilities at your local Sport Eastbourne Centre. Or how about heading down to your local free court at Fisherman's Green, Old Town Recreation Ground, Hampden Park or Gildredge Park for a game with your friends. 

Tennis is a brilliant sport, it is a sport for all and a sport for life. Whether you are new to the sport or a fanatic, perhaps you’ve not played for years, there has never been a better time to find out more and get on court with your friends and family!

Eastbourne serves up free tennis for all!

Community Tennis in Eastbourne


Eastbourne is now a free tennis town as a brand new scheme serves up free to use, bookable tennis courts across a range of public parks.

Following a major refurbishment last year, the public courts at Old Town Recreation Ground, Hampden Park and Fisherman’s Green, all offer free court use with a new online booking system.

With added security to prevent damage from unauthorised use, tennis players will now receive a door entry code when booking, allowing uninterrupted access to the new improved facilities. The scheme, which is run under contract by Wave Leisure and Tennis in the Park, will also see coaching programmes and community memberships, with free introductory coaching sessions for all.
