The Mission and Activities
The Sussex Sports Center Foundation mission is to build, operate and maintain a first-class multi-sport center in the middle of Sussex County for the citizens of Sussex County of all ages to enjoy.
Our vision is to promote a community involved in healthy pursuits through sports and outdoor activities. We want to foster team sports which promote a social network for children and adults, different from their school or neighborhood friends. Our view of the future reveals more interaction among all ethnic groups in Sussex County who get to know one another by being frequent users of Sandhill Fields facilities.
Sandhill Fields will be the home to 8 regulation sized soccer fields. The fields will be Bermuda Grass. The fields are open to public play, but Henlopen Soccer Club will have priority.
Sandhill Fields will be the home to 8 regulation sized lacrosse fields. The fields will be Bermuda Grass. The fields are open to public play, but Saltwater Club will have priority.
Running and Walking Trails
In addition to our Bermuda Grass playing fields, Sandhill Fields will be home to a 3.5 mile walking trail and a 3.1 mile regulation cross country course.
Sandhill Fields will feature 6 outdoor regulation pickleball courts. As the fastest growing sport in the United States, we will provide a safe and clean environment for the community to enjoy this game.
Youngsters will be able to take advantage and enjoy playing on our brand new tot-lot.
