Hastings & St. Leonards Angling Association

  Probably the top sea angling club in East Sussex

Hastings and St Leonards





Hastings & St. Leonards Angling Association was founded in 1895
as a freshwater angling club.

In 1904 a sea angling branch was formed and the two branches ran in parallel 
for a number of years.

The subsequent history of the freshwater branch is not known, 
but the sea angling branch became the current club.

For many years the club was based at 3 Marine Parade, Hastings, and in 1978 it moved into its present headquarters on the beach and since then the clubhouse has been extended and extensively refurbished.

Organised angling competitions between members and other associations are held throughout the year along with a varied social event calendar. 

The club also owns a number of small boats and these are available for members to hire at £2.50 per person per day. Please use the contact us page for further details.

The total membership of the club, including beach angling (social) members, is now well over 600.

The club is a member of the Angling Trust. Further information about the Angling Trust can be found on their website

 The association is also affiliated to the British Conger club, further details can be found on their website at
