The park has five public tennis courts and two leased courts used exclusively by Bexhill Tennis Club.
All of the courts are available to book up to 8 weeks in advance through an on-line booking system. It’s possible to book for up to two hours of play per day in 30 minute slots. A small charge of £1.70 per half hour of play applies from April to September (inclusive) reducing to £0.75 between October and March (inclusive).
Coaching is not permitted without prior approval from Rother District Council. Anyone wishing to run coaching sessions from the courts should contact email@example.com. Coaching charges are currently £2.25 per half hour, per court between April and September reducing to £1.00 between October and March.
This is currently unavailable, but new lines are due to be laid on one of the newly refurbished tennis courts in the Spring.
Alongside the tennis courts there is a hard-surfaced court (Court 7) with two mini-goals which can be used for informal ball games and walking football. Minor improvements will be made to it over the coming months. A maximum of ten people may use the court at any one time for walking football. For any other ball games, the permitted number is six people. The court can be booked through the on-line booking system. Alternatively, it can be used free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis when not in use by a paying customer.
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 be purchased through idVerde, the council’s grounds maintenance contractor.

In the past, boats have been available to hire during the summer to hire, but the presence of algae in recent summers has prevented this. Going forwards, it is unfortunately unlikely that this facility will be available.
