Sports

For the first time ever ‘Sports’ was introduced in the Club’s calendar of events in the year 1986. Our country’s most popular sport ‘Cricket’ made an entry into the Ad Club Madras with the support of Sportstar from The Hindu Group of Publications. Each year the popularity of this event grew and is today a much awaited event, attracting 25 to 30 teams, with the winners walking with the Prestigious ‘Ad Club Sportstar’ Trophy.

Cricket was soon followed by Table Tennis and Ball Badminton. Table Tennis was reintroduced in 1997-98 with 18 teams participating at the University Union Indoor stadium. The Winners’ Trophy was annexed by O&M. The event continues, attracting participants from both corporate and individual members of the club. The year 1999-2000 saw the addition of three more events like Chess, Carroms and Bowling.
