Our state of the art bar, “THE OVAL TAVERNERS”, continues to attract members, their families and their guests in increasing numbers. The ambience and improved quality of service has also attracted new members to join the Club. Bar prices are competitive and the accounting and recording systems have now been completely computerised. As a result there has been a marked increase in bar sales and for the first time we passed the landmark of Rs 1 Million in sales in March this year.
There were three “Club Night” events organised by the Bar & Reception Committee during the year; The AGM dinner in July, lighting of the Christmas Tree in December and The Oval Taverners Champions Night in January.
Another facility offered to members is the opportunity to host private functions at very attractive rates in a variety of locations –
- The air-conditioned Sathi Coomaraswamy Upper Stand
- The fan-cooled Sathi Coomaraswamy Lower Stand and the lawn in front of it
- The air-conditioned, newly re-furbished Club Board Room
- The air-conditioned corporate boxes in the Dr Ranjan Chanmugam Stand for smaller numbers
Our kitchen “THE CUISINE”, which is run by Supreme Caterers and opens for orders on a daily basis, continues to be a firm favourite with patrons. The quality of food and service and competitive pricing has been the hallmark of this continuing success. They also cater for private functions of members within the Club premises and also outside.
