TRANMERE Park Tennis Club at Fairway Close, Guiseley, LS20 8LJ, has purchased and installed a public access defibrillator under the guidance of Brian Firth, the founder of the Global Community Public Access Defibrillators Campaign (CPAD).

The club was awarded a grant of £500 from Leeds Council Community Committee funds towards the cost of the defibrillator, with the balance of the cost being paid for by the tennis club.

The defibrillator is, hopefully never needed, but is not intended for solely club use and its location in a central location of Tranmere Park means it could be accessed easily by local residents in the event of a medical emergency.

Members of the club recently met local councillors to thank them for their support The Global CPAD campaign was launched in 2013 and it is now the largest independent CPAD Campaign in Yorkshire.

Seventeen lives have been saved with the use of defibrillators installed under the campaign. People can see maps of local defibrillator locations at

If people use What3Words the location of the defibrillator at Tranmere Park Tennis Club is “sage – star – whips”.
