New for this year’s Nature Valley International is a brand new show court that is just one of the major improvements being made to the tennis offer at Devonshire Park.
Also new is a state-of-the-art irrigation system serving all courts to ensure Eastbourne’s world-famous grass courts remain in peak condition throughout the year. In addition, work will start later this year on two new practice courts.
Last year, brand new changing facilities “The Locker Room” opened in time for the 2017 tournament. This glass-fronted, timber clad building provides world class facilities, incorporating player changing rooms, fitness and physio suites, player lounges and medical facilities.
The tennis improvements are being funded jointly by Eastbourne Borough Council and the Lawn Tennis Association.
