|Southdown Tennis – Mission and Vision Statements|
‘To provide a first class tennis facility for all ages and skill levels, with a focus on offering a friendly environment for competitive and/or social tennis, where enjoyment of the game is enhanced through skilled coaching encouraging junior development as well as an emphasis on player development for all members in a safe, friendly and supportive club environment’
The Southdown Club has been part of the Sussex tennis scene for over 110 years. The Club is situated in the heart of Lewes, East Sussex, surrounded by fabulous views of the South Downs. It is a member’s owned and run club with its primary source of income coming through the size of its membership. Any annual profits are reinvested back into future maintenance and development of the club’s facilities so that the success of the club can be in every sense shared and enjoyed by all, both now and in many years to come.
The club has 16 courts, with several different playing surfaces: 2 acrylic (covered by a ‘bubble’ in the winter), 3 artificial grass (all floodlit), 5 hard macadam (2 floodlit) and 6 grass courts.
There is a clubhouse with a café/bar (Lazzatis), showers and changing facilities.
