CHEF CUISINE (RESTAURANT)
 

 
Squash

Two courts, one is open to air. The remaining two are in use – out of these one is earmarked for practice. The number one court has been renovated, is lit and has wooden floor. Besides those members who have since kept this sport alive in Lucknow, one must compliment Mr. Sudhir Halwasiya also who was instrumental in the renovation

 
Tennis Ground

Two clay courts are put to optimum use by the members both in the morning as well as evening. It is pertinent to mention here that originally the club campus extended into the erstwhile Polo ground across the road [Now DSOI] and there were some 16 Tennis courts in all

 
Swimming Pool

Originally the club had a covered swimming pool having a uniform depth of 8 feet at either end and it was in use till early nineties. The present open air pool, though inside the club premises [with a direct entrance from the main road] was in use by the officers of Lucknow Garrison, under the control of the Central Command. It became redundant when the Polo ground was landscaped and an Olympic size pool & Sports Complex built in early eighties by the Army.

 

The credit must be given to Maj Gen Koshi, the then Vice Chairman of the club, while posted as the MG [EME] in Central command, who arranged the permanent transfer of this pool to M B Club in early Nineties. The pool has since gone through upgrades at various stages [submersible pump, filtration plant, tiling, re-furbishing of ladies & men’s changing rooms]. The medium size pool affords a cool dip to members & their families during the sizzling summers. The pool-side lawns are a much in demand venue for private functions during the off season.

Cricket

The huge open space beyond the tennis courts was leveled, a Kitchen and Toilets built at one end, and the ground was put to use for increasing demand for a wedding venue sometime in the mid-eighties. It has an independent approach gate at the rear end of the club campus, meant to facilitate the residents of the Bungalows and Transit Cottages.

Sometime in end Eighties, late Sardar Jaswant Singh Sarna, a prominent member of the club

sponsored a cricket match between M B Club and Avadh Gymkhana on these grounds. Many inter and intra club cricket matches have been played here since. The “Sardar Jaswant Singh Memorial Trophy” cricket matches continue. This multi-purpose ground serves as the cricket ground, marriage & large cultural functions venue, besides being gobbled up during the New Year’s Eve Ball.
