Delhi is a hub for all things sports and the long list of sports complexes around the city is proof of how seriously we take our sports. And one such gem that has been fulfilling all our sporting needs since 1994 is our all-time favourite - Yamuna Sports Complex! 

This sports complex maintained by DDA has facilities for more than 15 sports and has everything from an archery field to a sports shop with all the sporting equipment and latest gadgets! And so, we listed out 6 evergreen sports that Yamuna Sports Complex is famous for, so scroll on y’all! 

1. Swimming

We understand the aversions you might have before entering a public swimming pool, but you must thank DDA for this humongous and very well maintained swimming area at Yamuna Sports Complex! They have well-trained coaches, a long list of dos & don’ts that are strictly followed by everyone, damn reasonable fees and a comfortable seating area!

Session Timings | 6 - 10 AM & 3 - 9 PM

2. Squash

Now if you play squash, then you know that this sports complex is the best place to play a game or two at! They have a big area with all the required equipment and a very cool court. They offer a 30-minute play period and although they prioritize their members, you can also play as a guest, so get your racquets out people, it’s time to play!

Session Timings | 6 AM - 9 PM (Summer) & 6:30 AM - 8:30 PM (Winter)

3. Tennis

So these guys have three tennis courts - a Clay Court, a Synthetic Court and a mini court for kids below 8 years. They have a practice wall where players can warm up before getting on the actual court as well.

The Clay Court here has no charges and is free to use, which basically means you’ll have to wait for your turn! But the perks of this complex being sarkari - the Synthetic Court sessions are for just 50 bucks during the day and for Rs 100 with the lights on - now how cool is that?!

Session Timings | 6 AM Onwards (Summer) & 6:30 AM Onwards (Winter)

4. Badminton
