People are welcome to come along and see the new centre, which can be found opposite Sovereign Harbour Retail Park.

Parking is available at the nearby Waterfront Car Park.

It has been a project in the pipeline for years, and Eastbourne Borough Council said delays were in part due to hold-ups with the utility connections.

A spokesperson for Eastbourne Borough Council said in a statement, “The council has delivered a wonderful new facility that will be enjoyed by present and future generations of local harbour residents.

“The grand opening will mark a very special day in the history of Sovereign Harbour.”

Wave Leisure Trust, a not-for-profit company based in Seaford, was appointed to manage the new centre as well as a number of seasonal football pitches and tennis courts elsewhere in town in February this year.
