Eastbourne Borough Council acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and adults at risk. We are committed to ensuring safeguarding practice is in line with legislation, statutory guidance and the Pan Sussex safeguarding procedures and complies with best practice and LTA requirements.  

Parents and legal guardians are responsible for their children when using the Fishermans Green Tennis courts and should not be left unsupervised.               

If you think a child, young person or adult is in immediate danger or risk of harm, please call 999.
