Pirates Club was founded in 1888
and has called Greenside home for the past 78 years.
The sports club is a non-profit association of members open to all and has always been run on a tight budget with every cost-cutting measure being made over the past three months to keep expenses to the minimum. The reality is that the club is still obliged to pay rent and utilities to the city and is doing everything possible to keep providing for our 22 staff and others who depend on the club for their livelihoods.
We receive no grants or other support to provide and maintain our sports and community facilities. Although the Club bars and most sports facilities remain closed for now we are still happy to welcome visitors using our space for recreation and relaxation at your own risk.
The continued closure of our bars is disastrous for Pirates as this revenue, together with membership subs is all we depend on to continue providing our facilities and supporting staff.
We are working hard to ensure Joburg’s oldest sports club will be around for many more years but we need your help!
