Public Meeting Kick-Starts Campaign To Save Club

Over 150 members, local residents and community representatives crammed into the Clubhouse on Thursday 25 October. The public meeting was held to inform everyone of the situation we are facing with the expiry of our lease on the 31st of December 2019. The packed meeting was informed how the Club has attempted on multiple occasions to open discussions with our landlords for an extension or renewal of the lease but have received no response from them since December 2017.

Our MP for Cardiff North, Anna McMorrin, addressed the meeting to help kick-start the campaign to save the Club in its current location in St Francis Road, together with local Assembly Member Julie Morgan and officials from Tennis Wales. The Club has been part of the fabric of Whitchurch for over 100 years and has provided a valuable recreational resource for local people, schools and the wider community at its current site for over 70 years.
