Egerton park has five public tennis courts, one of which doubles up as a pickleball court.  There are two additional courts which are used exclusively by Bexhill Tennis Club and another court with two mini goals which is used as an informal kickabout area. 

The courts are located on either side of the Indoor Bowls Club in the award wining park and are fully accessible to anyone wanting to play tennis including full time wheelchair users.  Each court is numbered.  Courts 1 and 2 are located to the west of the Indoor Bowls Club, close to Brockley Road.   The  kickabout court (Court 7) is located alongside the children's play-zone and only court where football and other sports should be played.
