The Club’s views on the commercial viability of a dedicated clubhouse are well documented.
We are, however, pleased to be able to announce that the Club has a new base in the heart of Pontypool, just a few minutes’ walk from the Italian garden gates.
The Comrades Club in Market Street is an ideal venue for supporters and players on matchdays.
It will be open pre-match for drinks and will host post-match formalities.
We trust supporters will treat this as they would an official clubhouse on matchdays and repay the commitment of The Comrades Club to Pontypool RFC, by patronising the premises.
Joy Mayers, who runs The Comrades Club, said: “We are delighted to welcome Pontypool RFC and their supporters to our premises at any time, but particularly on matchdays, and are very pleased the Club has chosen us as their official base in town.”
Executive Chairman, Peter Jeffreys, said: “After visiting several premises in Pontypool, The Comrades Club had everything we need and has a real clubhouse feel about it.
“The enthusiasm and commitment to the Club from Joy and her team is quite refreshing and we look forward to making the place our own.”
