COVID-19 Update on East Cliff Sports facilities

 The tennis courts, pitch and putt course, and putting green at East Cliff Sports have now reopened.

  • Procedures are in place to keep both our staff and residents safe, and we ask people to bring their own equipment where possible and follow the guidance set out.
  • Facilities will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We expect visitors to adhere to social distancing rules as any issues may result in the site's closure.
  • East Cliff Sports will be open between 9.30am and 7pm every day, with the last admission to the pitch and putt course at 5pm.
  • We will provide a further update when the bowling green is able to reopen.
  • Groups should be a maximum of six people unless from the same household.


Visit our open air sports facility on Folkestone's East Cliff, with stunning views over the town and across to France.

Great for all ages and abilities; for family fun or the more serious enthusiast.

You can just turn up - there will be someone in the on-site kiosk selling tickets.

  • Eight lawn tennis courts
