Club Members also have their own 'What's App' group with 85+ members. Membership is currently £85 a year which includes a free season ticket waiving all Brighton & Hove Parks court charges for 1 year. (www.dykeparktennis.co.uk)
All sessions are held at Dyke Park Tennis Club, Dyke Road Park, BN3 6EH, next to the Brighton Open Air Theatre, BHASVIC, Booth Museum, Windlesham School, Territorial Army and Tesco Express/Garage.
Racquets can be provided free of charge. There is phone and display parking alongside the tennis club although many players come by bike and leave them chained to the court fencing. The No. 27 bus stops outside.
A cafe and toilets are situated immediately next door. A First Aid box, changing and storage facilities, tap water and protective sun caps are always available.
Do come along and meet us, we are very inclusive, friendly and encouraging. We love playing tennis all year round!
