I suppose the one to ask is the previous owner who used that name.  That would be the polite thing to do.

Maybe.

Rolig has a good point, and for more than just politeness.  The previous owner probably created a club group.  If the group has not been disbanded, she could transfer ownership of it to you.  You can't ever re-use a group name, so if you could arrange this, it would be good.

Not with a club name, but if you use intellectual property that she owns, you could have problems.  Make your best effort to contact her and then go ahead and use the name, but make the club yours. You won't be able to take control of the group unless she made you a co-owner, although you may still be able to use your role in the group for deeding objects, sending group messages, etc.  You won;t be able to remove her as the owner even if you are a co-owner.

Since you're still a member of the old group, be sure to tell the members about the "resurrected" club and invite them to the new group.
