Welcome to Southdown Tennis

As one of the largest, most active clubs in Sussex, Southdown Tennis has 16 courts located in the beautiful semi-rural setting of Lewes. The Club offers extensive playing opportunities for all ages and abilities, whether you enjoy mixing in for social tennis, just want to play with friends and family, want to join one of the many coaching groups or enjoy playing competitive tennis in the many men’s and ladies’ teams which run all the year round. The club has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere providing a wonderful outdoor facility not only to play tennis, but to form many new friendships.

Southdown has a full team of qualified coaches on hand offering individual and group coaching for both adults and juniors, with a comprehensive year-round tennis programme and annual tournaments tailored for beginner, social and more advanced players.
