The tennis facilities are (almost) as grand! There are 9 courts (7 hard, two carpet), 1 mini court, plus cafe, conservatory, pro shop, changing rooms and a car park. Everything a tennis player could want!

Littlehampton and Bognor
Just along the coast from our Adur & Worthing league, this seaside league boasts several great venues perfectly placed for a post-match swim or, if that is too chilly, an icecream at the very least. There are some gems among the courts, particularly those tucked away at Maltravers Park in Littlehampton. Make the most of the grass courts here while you can. It's a short season but well worth taking advantge of and if you have never played on grass before, your knees are in for a treat!
