The park has five public tennis courts one of which doubles up as a pickleball court.

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).

Booking isn’t compulsory, but those who book have priority of use.  Those who would prefer not to book a court can continue to use them free of charge on a first-come, first served basis provided they are not in use by a customer who has booked.

Coaching is not permitted without prior approval from Rother District Council. Anyone wishing to run coaching sessions from the courts should contact Coaching charges are £2.25 per half hour, per court between April and September reducing to £1.00 between October and March.

There are two additional courts which are used exclusively by Bexhill Tennis Club and are locked when not in use.


One of the tennis courts is also marked out for pickleball.  This court can be booked through the on-line booking system.


Alongside the tennis courts there is a hard-surfaced court with two mini-goals which can be used for informal ball games and walking football.  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.
