Please continue to access the LTA website for up-to-date guidance.  

We will continue to display the Track and Trace QR code at the Club and ask that all members show respect for others who may want to continue to maintain space, tap rackets vs. shake hands etc.  Hands, Face and Space continues to be a great way to think about safe tennis activity! 


Cross in Hand Tennis Club is located in the heart of East Sussex..

...and is one of the leading tennis venues in the area.   With members ranging from toddlers to players in their 80s, the club offers first-class facilities which include five clay courts, three of which were resurfaced with Lano Grand in July 2020. The clay courts allow tennis to be played year-round and floodlights extend the playing time on winter evenings. There is also a singles hard court which is ideal for junior  play.

Cross in Hand Tennis Club hosts many activities including social club sessions, singles and doubles ladders and  an annual club tournament. There are also several  men’s, ladies’, mixed and junior teams which compete against other clubs across Sussex and Kent.  Regular social activities take place in the clubhouse which is equipped with a bar, changing rooms and a shower room.

Players range from county standard to beginners and there are sessions available to suit any standard, including coaching from Nick Andrews and the excellent Elevate Tennis Coaching team.

If you are interested in joining our welcoming club then please go to the Membership tab to find out more.


Cross in Hand Tennis Club works in close cooperation with Tennis Sussex and the LTA.   The latest copy of Baseline, Tennis Sussex's in-house magazine, can be found here
