    This is one of the great family clubs of which I’m a member too. Its one of the best in Sri Lanka and home to most of the Sri Lankan cricketers including the present Captain Mahela & former Captain Arjuna. The club is situated in Colombo 7. The club has many facilities which include, Cricket obviously, Swimming, Diving, Squash, Badminton, Tennis, Table tennis & a Gymnasium. The Cricket ground is an international test venue.
