Sadly The Darley closed in October 2012 after 123 years
Extract from Trafford Planning Committee minutes dated 11th September 2014 when permission was granted to build 14 properties: “ 22(A) That the application will propose a satisfactory form of development for the site upon the completion of an appropriate Legal Agreement to secure a maximum financial contribution of £265,440 towards the provision of replacement tennis courts within the local area and to provide that the Council will use its best endeavours to ensure that the replacement facility can be made available for use by a club and for tennis coaching. ” As of June 2017 we are still waiting for any information from the council about this provision.
