KC Sports Club located at Akhnoor Road Jammu, adjacent to KC Public School had opened its doors to the Public last April. It is the first of its kinds not only in Jammu and Kashmir but in north India.
The facility is spread over 3 floors, covering an area of around 60,000 sqft over 1.5 acres of land. The ground floor consists of a gym with fitness equipment imported from USA, along with a rock climbing wall offering adventure enthusiasts a well-designed resource to learn rock climbing under the guidance of an instructors. Although the facility boast state of the art equipment on taking a closer look the equipment was very basic and any Delhi Gym would be able to put it to shame when compared.
The first floor of the Club measuring about 16,000 sq ft offers the facility of an indoor Cricket Hall. The flooring of the hall done with Tiger Turf imported from New Zealand is ICC and BCCI approved. It offers surfaces for batting and has tracks designed for pace and spin bowling. An automatic Bola bowling machine offers the convenience of solo batting practice with the machine spewing out a variety of pre-programmed deliveries. The hall is fitted with specially designed lights to facilitate playing day and night cricket either individually or in the form of an indoor match. When asked if the JKCA had approached to use the facility the answer was a blunt no. With so many facilities at their disposal the JKCA ought to make use of the Hall which would help in improving cricket in the state.
Among other facilities there’s a 20 meter long all weather swimming pool, multi sports hall for Martial Arts and Table Tennis. The complex is still under construction and plan to branch out into activities like creative dancing, squash and fencing. While the club is no doubt full of facilities its membership is on the higher side, which means it only caters to the rich and elite.
