Shivaji Park Gymkhana

       This is a very famous place in shivaji park area, which is the favourite haunt of many youngsters, sport lovers and also elderly people.
       The Katta(parapet) in front of SPG(as it is called) in the evening has no place at all and is crowded by youngsters for whom this is a meeting point.
       The history of SPG goes back to 1909 when a tiny Maharashtra Cricket Club came into being.This club was alloted a small plot of land in shivaji Park. Later it came to be called as Dadar Hindu Gymkhana and then to emphasize its cosmopolitan character it was renamed as Shivaji Park Gymkhana.
       It has presently around 2500 members. Activities undertaken include cricket, Tennis ,Billiards,Table Tennis ,Carrom, Karate, Gymnasium, Card Room. But cricket is one of the main attractions and this institution has given our country of test players who have made their mark in the international scence.First it was Vijay Manjrekar, closely followed by subhash Gupte, Chandu Patankar, Manohar Hardikar, Baloo Gupte, Ramakant Desai, Ajit Wadekar, Sunil Gavaskar, Sandeep Patil, Sanjay Manjrekar,Pravin Amre and many more players and not to forget Test Umpires and National officials.
       Apart from cricket, the combination of Madhu Patil and Manohar Bopardikar, Gajanan Shirke and V.G.Bhinde earned for the Gymkhana the distinction of winning Inter Club Seers Cup Badminton title.
Shyam Shroff,the snooker international, is a product of this institution.

The Ladies Table Tennis Squad,Jaya Walwalkar and Suhasini Dharap are also acredited to this institution.
The Gymkhana has been providing excellent facilities to Tennis players year after year. It is due to these facilities as well as the conduct of all India and/or State Ranking Tournaments for a continous period of 12 years that the gymkhana has been given a permanent seat on the managing council of the MSLTA.
