The People that make it happen

Eastbourne Downs is a private members club. That means our members have a say in how it is run and play a large part in the running of the club alongside our employees. Find out more about the people that make our club work.

Ladies Captain: Gill Olivier

The Ladies section at Eastbourne Downs prides itself on its friendliness and operates a ‘buddy’ scheme to ensure that new members are made to feel welcome and to help them integrate into the club.

As a section we enter County Competitions and other national Competitions such as those organised by the Mail on Sunday and Daily Mail. We also have a programme of friendly and competitive matches with other local clubs. Please visit us, to see all we have to offer.

Seniors' Captain: Terry Marsh

Welcome to the Seniors’ Section at Eastbourne Downs.  It is the friendliest, most active, most full-of-fun section anywhere. It is open for men aged 55 and over and we can promise players of all abilities, from beginners to those with single-figure handicaps, a lively group of fellow travellers to spend some of your leisure time with and enjoy your sport you love.

Our Management Team

Our professional management team are responsible for the day to day running and management of our Club on behalf of the members and the Management Board.

Our Committees
