Gezira Center Court sign now

Ever since 1907, Gezira Sporting Club was the official home of Egypt's lawn tennis with open tournaments and championships held on its clay courts at regular intervals. As of 1925, international celebrities took part in these widely attended events. Despite the launch of the LTA Championship in 1934, Gezira Club continued to offer its two cups: the DOHERTY which was awarded to the winners of the singles, and the SLAZENGER for the doubles.

In 1952, the Gezira Tennis Center Court was constructed at a cost of LE 40,000 (which was enormous then). Ever since and until the 1970's, the Center Court was home to international players in its world famous LTA championships.

Here is the problem, as of January 2010, the board of the Gezira Sporting Club wants to demolish this historic building to replace it with an ALL-PURPOSE closed arena dedicated to basketball, volleyball and handball.

Please sign this petition to stop this action!!! Your vote will make a difference.

We demand that the historic Tennis Center Court at Gezira Sporting Club be refurbished (at a fraction of the cost of building the new one) in order to bring back the international championships and players.
