NOSTALGIA: Eastbourne tennis photos from yesteryear

As the Nature Valley International Tennis Tournament begins in town this weekend, Heritage Eastbourne had provided some wonderful photographs of the tennis courts and tournaments across the borough.

The photographs show Eastbourne’s long association with tennis tournaments and how popular council courts were in days gone by.
