The Devonshire Club is one of Eastbourne's oldest private members clubs and is conveniently situated close to both the town shops and the sea front.
It is a popular meeting place for members and their guests, just as it was way back in the 1870's for the Duke of Devonshire and his family and friends. In setting up the club it was his intention to replicate the best of the London clubs.
Today we have moved on from the Reading Rooms and Library and offer facilities more suited to the 2000's!
Membership is open to both men and women and the subscription is £110 per year with no entrance fee, currently. We also have Associates who do not wish to avail themselves of the full facilities offered by the club, at £50 per year.
Full membership includes the use of the club's car park when using the club's facilities and a full range of events (see the Diary) and may bring along guests to any of the events.
To join, please contact the Honorary Secretary for you to visit or for details to be sent to you.
Snooker and, to a lesser degree, billiards have been associated with the club throughout it's history. It has spawned several top players, including one national billiards champion. Several teams are based at the club and play in the Eastbourne & District Snooker League.
Devonshire Club members are also able to enjoy the facilities of many other like clubs around the World on a reciprocal arrangement. Some of the clubs may be able to offer accommodation but this should always be checked directly with the reciprocal club Secretary beforehand.
