Pressure on Tatts rules
BRISBANE’S historic Tattersall’s Club has taken another step towards overturning a century-and-a-half old ban on having women as members.
The membership has provided feedback to the club suggesting most would favour women being admitted to the club, established in 1865.
In an email to members obtained by The Courier-Mail, Tatts has revealed that 57 per cent of members who participated in a recent survey agreed membership should be expanded to include women.
It is believed the club, which occupies a historic building at the bottom end of Queen St, could move to have a vote on the issue before Christmas.
The club last voted down a motion to accept women in 2006. Membership has dropped more than 700 in a decade.
