    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The recent snow and high winds from storm Eleanor have caused severe damage to our air dome which covers three of our tennis courts during the winter months. There are a number of large rips and tears in it which you can see in the photos and it is now lying on the ground.

    There has also been significant damage to the lighting under the fabric too.

    Our tennis club at Cwmbran is quite a small tennis club but the air dome over the three courts is not only used by its members but also by the local community and the surrounding clubs during the winter months. Albeit small, we are the only tennis club in South East Wales to have this facility and it has been looked after for the past 18 years or more.

    The air dome was acquired by Cwmbran Tennis Club in the millennium by way of lottery funding, as well as working hard to raise funds ourselves and there is no way we can afford to repair or replace the air dome without your help.

    To lose the air dome completely would be catastrophic as this facility allows people to play tennis whatever the weather, both for club members and the public.

    We run various coaching programmes for both adults and children.

    We run cardio tennis classes which is a new way of keeping fit even if you can’t play tennis.

    We run winter tournaments which enable other tennis clubs to make use of the air dome.

    Local schools use the air dome to run their own tournaments and classes.

    Local rugby clubs have asked to use it for coaching when the weather is too bad to train outside.

    We need to bring in air dome specialists to assess the severity of the damage and to advise the likelihood of repairs and if so what the options will be.

    This all costs money which a small tennis club like ours doesn’t have.

    Please therefore help us to keep this amazing facility that has benefited everyone over the years, by donating what you can, even £1 will help us on the way to recovery.

        Fantastic facility. I'm not a member but I love playing there. I really hope you can get it fixed and back in use.

      We are located within the grounds of the Greenmeadow Golf & Country Club in Cwmbran. We were the first club in East Wales to achieve Club Mark. We have six courts – three of which are covered by a heated inflatable air dome during winter months October to April.
