The Health Club Committee, also known as the Health Club Services Committee, or the Health Services Committee, was one of the earliest standing committees created by the Y.M.-Y.W.H.A. Their original mandate was to oversee the operation of the men's health club. In 1953 a separate women's health club was created alongside the men's and a Women's Health Services Committee was struck to oversee its operations. A new Men's Health Services Committee was created to reflect this new arrangement, while the old Health Club Committee continued to function, but in a new role as a joint committee.
