Delhi Guide

All you need to know

before you go.

In India, cricket reigns supreme and is played everywhere, from smart cricket clubs to the grassy spaces of New Delhi and street corners. The national side is followed with a devotion that borders on the fanatic. India is a consistently strong team, ably doing battle with its mighty antipodean, South African and UK rivals. In Delhi, Test Matches are played at Ferozshah Kotla Stadium, located on Bahadur Shah Zhafar Marg, between September and March. Attending a Test Match here is quite an experience and is not for the faint-hearted.

 

Other popular Indian games include kabbadi, a team sport combining the characteristics of wrestling and rugby, and kho kho, an evolved game of catch and hockey, in which the Indians regularly produce sides that challenge the best in the world. More mundanely, there are facilities in Delhi catering to the city's elite, for a good selection of sports, including gyms, tennis, golf and

swimming.Bowling: Indians, like many Asians, seem to enjoy bowling and there is a popular bowling alley at the Qutb Hotel, off Sri Aurobindo Marg (tel: (011) 652 1234).Fitness centres: In Delhi, fitness centres mean status and the well groomed keep in shape at Arya Vaidya Sala, South Extension

(tel: (011) 462 1790), and Nelson Health Club, Hotel Samrat, Chanakyapuri (tel: (011) 611 0606). Many of the five-star hotels also provide exercise facilities for their guests. Golf: Delhi's best-known golf course is the Delhi Golf and Country Club, Dr Zakir Hussein Marg (tel: (011) 436 2768). It boasts a nine-hole and an 18-hole course, both of which are dotted with Mughal mausolea. The timid should note that cobras supposedly lurk in the rough. The 18-hole course is open to the public on weekdays but restricted to members and their guests at weekends.

 

The nine-hole course is open to all throughout the week. Green fees are Rs1950 (US$40) and a set of clubs can be hired for Rs20 Caddies and ball-spotters are available. Horseracing: Delhi Racecourse, off Safdarjang Road (tel: (011) 301 2943), has regular meetings during the racing season, which runs from October until the end of April. Delhi's racecourse is an informal, almost provincial course, in marked contrast to Mumbai's grand stands and spacious lawns. There is a large covered shed, which contains the bookies' pitches. Admission to the Members'

Enclosure costs Rs50.Horseriding and polo: The Delhi Riding Club, Safdarjung Road (tel: (011) 301 1891), and the Polo Club, Cavalry Cariappa Marg, both provide equestrian sporting opportunities and facilities. The polo season is from October to March.Swimming: The safest swimming is at hotel pools, including Hotel Imperial, Janpath (tel: (011) 334 1234), Hotel Samrat, Chanakyapuri (tel: (011) 611 0606), and Ashok Hotel, Chanakyapuri (tel: (011) 611 0101). All hotels are likely to charge non-residents. Public swimming baths are located at NDMC Pools, Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri, National Stadium Complex, opposite India Gate, and Talkatora Pool, Talkatora Road.

 

Tennis: Another sport thought to have originated in India, there are tennis facilities at Delhi Lawn Tennis Association, Africa Avenue; Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Bhishama Pitamah Road, and the National Sports Club of India, Mathura Road (tel: (011) 338 5564).Watersports: Watersports at Bhaleswa Lake, as well as other adventure activities - local and further afield - are available through
