Southwater Sports Club has been in existence for over 128 years and provides an essential facility for the whole Southwater community.  It started as a Tin shed for Cricketers to get changed in, and in 1963 the shed was demolished and the Cricketers erected a new wooden structure with two changing rooms and a small Bar. In 1975 a further extension was added providing two more changing rooms. In the early 80's local Landlady May Brown became Head Barmaid and ran the Club for many years really moving it forward. In 1982 The Cricket Club amalgamated with Southwater Football Club and the name changed to Sothwater Sports Club.  In 1985 the Club was once again demolished by it's members and a new bigger building was constructed with further extensions being added in the 80s and 90s.          

In April 2019 we moved to a brand new location and welcome all new members. We offer Football and Cricket from Colts up to Veteran ages, which are played all year round. In addition we have Darts, Bar Billiards and Pool teams in which new players are always welcome.

This year we also have on site a Multi-use games area (MUGA) Pitch and a brand new Tennis section.  We have a thriving social section with frequent events and Bingo is played every Tuesday from 8pm. 

We also have 4 large TV screens showing sport from all terrestrial channels, Sky and BT Sport. 

For membership information, please see the membership section of the website or visit the club, which is situated opposite the Holy Innocents Church in Church lane.

The images on the right show the development of the club from 1963 to 2019.

We are an ECB Clubmark accredited club that has enjoyed continuous success and growth over the last few years.

We run three league teams competing in the Sussex Cricket League, with the 1st XI in Division 5 West.

We also run Sunday friendly teams to ensure that we provide as much opportunity for all cricketers to get a game every week.

We offer junior cricket for boys and girls from the age of 6 with clear progression into our senior teams.

In 2019 we won the Sussex Coaching Club of the Year Award in recognition of the opportunities we are providing, success on the pitch (winners of several colts leagues) quality of qualified coaching being delivered, facilities, and the growth of the colts section with boys, girls and mixed teams across the age levels.We are always on the lookout for volunteers especially with scoring or umpiring, if you are interested then full training will be given.

Football has been played here since 1958. Over the last 60 years the team has evolved and grown somewhat and moved with the changes that have happened within football. Both the Senior and Junior sections have enjoyed continued success and growth over this time.

We are a FA Chartered Standard club with a Junior section having teams from U8’s to U16’s and a Senior section with three Saturday teams and two Sunday teams one of which is a Veterans team.

We endeavour to give the opportunity for football to be played whatever your age. As much as we love our current squads, we are always looking to recruit additional players for all our junior age groups & senior teams.

We are also especially keen if you would be interested in sponsorship packages & volunteering to help with the running and administration of the club.
