    Weʼve raised £990 to Save Wimbledon Park

    Funded on Saturday, 10th June 2023

    Don't have time to donate right now?




    Wimbledon Park - one of Capability Brown’s celebrated landscapes - is under threat from the multimillion-pound commercial expansion of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

    All England Tennis has applied for planning permission to build a stadium and 38 new tennis courts on this historic site.

    The Capability Brown Society is campaigning to save the Park, whose unique heritage, environmental value, open space and beauty will be lost, if All England are allowed to turn it into a giant tennis centre!

    To all those who care about Capability Brown landscapes, about open spaces, or about the Park’s unique heritage and environmental value – we need your help! Please support our campaign.

    Your donations will be used to raise awareness of the campaign, build community and political support, and to take the matter to court if the overwhelming case against planning permission is ignored.

    Please visit our website for further information: The Capability Brown Society

    Please write to Merton and Wandsworth with your own objections. Or sign the petition that local residents have started: Save Wimbledon Park.

        A very worthy cause - Aeltc's plans & proposals for the Park will ruin Capability Brown's landscape - and the Park will lose its status as a Grade II* Historic England Listed Park & Garden

        Community engagement should include refurbishing the damaged hard courts in Wimbledon Park, or adding Basketball Courts (or even Padel?). And cheaper Wimbledon Tennis tickets to local residents.

        It is imperative that Wimbledon Park Golf Course remains a glorious landscape and be not ruined and desecrated by the wicked plans of the AELTC

      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
