The Enclosed Ground, Whitehawk FC
Home to Whitehawk since the late 1950s. The club began life as Whitehawk & Manor Hill Old Boys in 1952 and have been a consistent Sussex County league team since then. They were promoted to Ryman League One South in 2009/10 and just missed out on the play-offs for the Ryman League premier the following season. Since the demise of Withdean they are the only other football club of any consequence within the city and currently have plans to at least get to Conference level which involves expanding the ground this season utilising some of the old seating from Withdean stadium which are currently 'on loan' to Newhaven Town of Sussex County League Two.

Immediately behind the ground is Sheepcote Valley camping and caravan park which municipally owned and as you climb the slopes come to Stanley Deason Leisure Centre located in a former school that was closed ten years ago due to persistently poor results.To the left of the school are the all weather pitches used for hockey and five a side football leagues though their exposed nature to the south westerlies off the sea make them a difficult place to play on at times. Whitehawk Hill and its transmitter is in the distance with the large building on the left being Thomas Kemp Tower which is part of the Royal Sussex Hospital complex.
