Eastbournian Society Sports Club

Those local to Eastbourne, interested in keeping fit and seeing friends are invited to join the Eastbournian Society Sports Club (ESSC). The club is designed to encourage and enable our members to use the fantastic sports facilities at Eastbourne College at a competitive price.

Members should sign in at reception on Old Wish Road, from 8.30am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during term time, and the following facilities are available for use:

  • Swimming pool - 8.30-10.00am
  • Gym - 8.30-10.30am
  • Squash courts - 8.30-11.30am

All members will need to complete our online registration process which includes watching a video induction session and completing a PARQ (Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire) before they can access the facilities.

If you are happy to give us permission to do so, we will add you to our ESSC member WhatApp group. The group is used to communicate with members for any last-minute changes to the facility use or availability as emails may not be checked as often.

Our charitable status means that we are unable to charge for use of the facilities, but are entitled to accept donations. Whether you go on to use the facilities on a drop-in basis, or would like to commit termly or annually, we have some suggested amounts:

  • £5 for a one-off drop-in session
  • £65 for unlimited use during one term
  • £180 for unlimited use during the year (term-time only, 35 weeks in total)
