It is probably the most cherished visual delight of the club especially in the summers. The place can cater to around 500-600 people simultaneously. It is not out of the place to say that it is manicured and maintained to near perfection. The attempts to convert it into a spacious lawn were started in 1994 when a fountain enlivened it for the first time. However, it was in 2004 when it was enlarged, and landscaped with tree-lined hillocks, mini bridge and waterfalls.Needless to say that it is the most visited place in the club and it is a pleasure to have food and combine it with the exotic experience of sitting in front of an illuminated red tiled and tilted roofed heritage building. Bonus for children is an amusement park with rides.
Been to Rolland Garros for French Open? Not needed! A visit to red clay topped tennis courts of RGMC will suffice.
