The park has five public tennis courts which are available to use free of charge. These courts are kept unlocked and there is no booking system in place, so simply turn up and play.  There are two additional courts which are used exclusively by Bexhill Tennis Club and are locked when not in use.

Outdoor Bowls

In recent years, the Spartan’s (men’s) and Lakeside (ladies’) bowls clubs have merged and continue to be based at Egerton Park. The green is also available for public use. Tickets can normally be purchased through idVerde, the council’s grounds maintenance contractor but due to Covid-19, the green is not currently available for play.  This situation will be reviewed in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, people wishing to play bowls this summer may use the greens at the Polegrove or Sidley instead.
