Badminton Court

Smash hit
The younger tribes of the club are discerning enough to appreciate the high quality badminton courts at The Poona Club. Catch them rule our wooden courts.
In the mid 19th century a game called ‘Poona’ emerged in India which closely resembled the present day sport (Badminton). Initially, balls of wool, referred to as ‘Ball Badminton’ were preferred by the upper classes in windy or wet conditions; but ultimately, the shuttlecock stuck. This game was taken by retired officers back to England where it developed and rules were set out. Two international standard Badminton courts invite the best of players at the Club today.
Top class shock-absorbing wooden flooring and superb lighting with separate changing rooms have encouraged national and international players at our Badminton Courts. Two to three tournaments mark the sports calendar from this facility.
Thanks to our well trained markers and coach, some of our member’s children have come out winners! New comers can avail facilities between 4.30 pm and 6.30 pm on Tue to Fri and 9.30 am to 11.30 am on weekends.

Tennis

Indian Tennis League fever.
Pune will have a share of Sania’s soon.
Poona Club is leaving no clay unturned to ensure that the city’s tennis freaks find all the right reason to serve and volley at the flood lit courts.
The History of tennis dates backs several hundred years. It was first created by the European monks around 12th Century and latter adapted by Henry VIII in the 16th Century at the Royal Hampton court. Having royal patronage, the game travelled with the British to various part of the colonial empire for the re-creation of its officers and senior bureaucrats in British cantonments.
Poona Club tennis courts were earlier located at the present day Cinema hall and later shifted to their present location. The old grass court were replaced by sand court and today the club has excellent flood lit synthetic and sand courts. A temporary tin structure using British rail lines as columns served as the tennis pavilion for years! This was finally replaced by a modern pavilion in 2012.
The Club has been host to many ITF tournaments and its own pedigree of international players include Davis Cuppers Nandan Bal, Nitin Kirtane and Radhika Tulpule of Fed Cup. Many of the India tennis greats Vijay Amritraj, Sashi Menon, Leander Paes, Sania Mirza have graced and played at our tennis courts.
Set up in the heart of the Club, the tennis courts are surrounded by beautiful lush green foliage and trees. The moment you enter the tennis courts one enters a regal world of charm. The marker, the ball boys, runners for refreshments and the Colonial atmosphere transports you to a different world.
