Secunderabad, Zoroastrian Club, Sorts Hall Inaugurated


The Zoroastrian Club’s renovated indoor sports hall was inaugurated by Katherine S. Dhanani, Hyderabad Consul General of the USA on Thursday.Apart from a badminton court, the facility also accommodates sections for table tennis and indoor sports such as carrom. “The flooring for the badminton court has been relaid,” said Rohinton Jal Noria, the club’s President.The hall, measuring 60′ x 60′, was perhaps the first to have a shuttle court in the Twin Cities, if not the state. Dating back to 1951, it was built by retired Railway Chief Engineer P.E. Aibara, brother of the revered cricket coach, Eddie, on the lines of the one at the Cricket Club of India (CCI) in Mumbai.The high roof saw the ‘bird’ fly freely, when shuttle stalwarts such as Erland Kops and All England championship quarter finalist Nandu Natekar had fans enthralled. — Special Correspondent
