The Madras Club, founded in 1832, is the second oldest surviving club in India after the Bengal Club, Calcutta. It has had three homes including its present one, the Mowbrays Cupola.The first meeting of the Club was held in February, 1832 with Sir Robert Comyn, the Chief Justice in the Chair. Plans for acquisition of premises were presented at this meeting and a Club House was purchased just before the opening date of 15.05.1832, in a Garden House, comprising 7 Acres, just off Mount Road between Whites Road and General Patters Road. The premises were purchased from Mr. Webster for Rs.30,000/- and forms the core of what is today called the "Express Estate", (now converted to the "Express Avenue" mall) abutting Club House Road. Sir Henry Chamier, the Chief Secretary, was the first President of the Club.By 1862, the membership had grown to around 3000 and a need was felt for greater space. This led to the acquisition of a 4 acre property from Waller in 1852 and the lease of a 5 acre property from Col. Patullo, in 1898. These were the heydays of the Club and it soon became known as the Ace of Clubs, comparing favourably with the legendary Melbourne Club, Australia.During this period the Club played host to grand balls including one in honour of the Duke of Edinburgh in 1870, another for the Prince of Wales, (who later became King Edward VI) in 1875, for the Prince of Wales (Later King George V) in 1905, for the Duke of Connaught in 1921 and for the Prince of Wales (Later King Edward VIII) in 1922. On these occasions, ladies were allowed into the all-male, well protected precincts of the Club.Since considerable expenses were required for maintenance as well as renovation of the Club, the Club moved into its second home at Branson Bagh opposite to the Church Park School, which belonged to the Raja of Bobbili. After renovation, it was ready to receive its members from April 1948.Less than 10 years after it moved into its second home, the financial position of the Club was causing serious concern to its members. An increase in subscription was inevitable, but most members felt that they could not afford subscription to two major clubs, the other club being the Adyar Club, founded in 1890.A proposal was mooted to merge both the clubs and after protracted discussions lasting over seven years, the merger was finally effected in 1963. The Madras Club sold its second home, Branson Bagh, and moved into its present location at Mowbrays Cupola along with a part of Mowbrays Garden, comprising 12.7 acres purchased from the Archdiocese of Mylapore, Madras, forming part of an extent of 105 acres which had been taken on lease by the Adyar Club.Mowbrays Cupola was built sometime before 1792 by George Mowbrays, a respected businessman who later became the Sheriff and Mayor of Madras. He returned to England after his retirement in 1792 and the entirety of Mowbrays Gardens comprising 105 acres was acquired by Mr. John D’Monte, who died without any heirs, bequeathing his property to the Archdiocese of Mylapore, Madras.The club has achieved a blend between a family club and one where privacy is available, and where serious business may also be addressed. Being run in a democratically elected and broad based electoral system, the Club has a wonderful mechanism by which it is run with the members’ interests uppermost. The Club has excellent dining and entertainment facilities, extensive car parking area for 150 cars, 14 residential rooms, an excellent library, two restaurants, a bakery, five tennis courts, the best swimming pool in town, a gymnasium, a walking track, and of course it is located on the Adyar River.The Madras Club has retained its old world charm while at the same time offering modern comfort and facilities to its members.+ Read More

If this what you have in mind, then look no further than the Madras Club Tennis Courts.

Jogging Track Service

Imagine walking along a gently winding track set amidst lush greenery, beautiful, historically rich buildings and a lawn on one side and the Adyar river lapping against the shore on the other, a cool breeze ruffling your hair and the twittering of birds on trees, sheer bliss! The Madras Club Jogging/Walking Track is one such 500-metre long haven.

The fact that the track is laid using sand and clay makes it much easier on the joints as opposed to a synthetic or asphalt track. A couple of benches dot the sides of the track so that users can sit and rest their limbs for a while before taking off again. Drinking water and fresh paper cups are provided in a small rest area at the entrance to the track. The timings are convenient, from ___ to ___ in the mornings and from ___ to ___ in the evenings, so you can still catch up on your exercise after a long and hard day’s work. Outdoor lights are placed at regular intervals around the track for illumination at night.

In an increasingly crowded world, where roads are used less for walking and more by hawkers, parked bikes, animals even, and where there is always the risk of getting run over by a wayward driver, a leisurely walk or an endorphin-releasing run at the Madras Club Jogging Track could be just what the doctor ordered.
