Model Town Club, Ludhiana

The present Model Town Club was the part of Model Town Welfare Council, and came into existence, sometimes in October 1967. Sardar Jodh Singh, a well-known educationalist, inaugurated this club. In the very beginning, there was only one small room and a few regular members - who used to enjoy while playing rummy & chess. Starting from a scratch, it is now a big show and one of the best clubs of the town. Model Town Club has beautiful family lounge, good rummy room, gymnasium, well stocked bar etc.

In 1967 a big area of land was marked for a club in the Model Town Ludhiana by administration. But nobody came forward to start the club. So the members of Community Centre approached the Govt. & got the whole area for the Jhanjghar or community center. But when B.S. Chhatwal & Major Tirath Singh came to know about this & thought about atarting a club in Model Town in the area allotted for the club. Since the Community Centre had yet built a very small area for the purpose, both were hopeful of claiming the rest of the area for the club. So they approached the other party, saying that legally they could get the whole area for the club. So instead of going to Court, they made a compromise and agreed to get 50% of the area for the club.

During the years 1975 to 1991, when Mr. N.S. Nanda was the General Secretary for some years & President for the balance years, lot of improvement was done in building. Today, Model Town Club commands a respectable position in the city & it is providing various recreational facilities like billiards, health club, lawn-tennis, Badminton, Cards Rooms besides a very spacious beautifully decorated dining hall.

According to Mr. N.S. Nanda, who rendered more than fifteen years of his life span to uplift the status of this club, Model Town Club is one of the hallmarks of Ludhiana. Model Town Club has developed into a remarkable place of entertainment, relaxation mental, physical & social bonds. It also executes the spirit of friendliness and mutual fellowship. There is no gain saying the fact that the Model Town Club is an asset for the resident of Model Town Ludhiana.
