  Our Story.  

At The Tennis Cafe, nestled in Gildredge Park, Eastbourne, we've been blending great tennis, fitness and yummy food since 2009. Founders, Francis and Gemma, envisioned a place where family and community come together, offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere.


Everyone is welcome at The Tennis Cafe, where we offer tennis and fitness programs with no membership requirements. It's all about enjoyment and improvement without monthly direct debits or stuffy rules. Just high quality sport, fun and a friendly atmosphere. Our unique approach and style has earned us recognition both locally and nationally. So, whether you're here for a game, some relaxation, or a delightful snack, you're a valued part of our journey!


"Thank you guys for creating such a great place to not only play tennis but also to enjoy cup of coffee! Super nice smoothies and drinks!"


“Thank you to the whole Team who have been there for Mason since he was 2 and a half years old! Who would have thought back then he would be representing GB now.  We are so grateful to you all"


“The Tennis Cafe is an amazing community, with friendly, warm staff and AMAZING food. I play tennis here, eat with friends and family and recently had my little one’s birthday party."
