If you are a sports enthusiast and love the feeling of holding a racket(tennis, badminton, table tennis), like to play a helicopter shot, go for a swim or do a beach volleyball routine, you will find everything in a 5 km radius.Lets go for a watch out
1. GCC Club: GCC Club in Mira Road is one of the foremost family and sporting activities club in Mira-Bhayandar. The sporting activities offered are Swimming, Tennis, Table Tennis, Squash(they opened it recently), Skating(for kiddds..), Badminton( yes they have a international standard wooden flooring for it). Did I mention Billiards and Yoga. They offer various membership like yearly, lifetime and others. Please take a look at their site :
Location: It is accessible from Mira-Bhayandar Road.
(If you get lucky, you might also run into ACP Pradyuman or Daya from the C.I.D, which is aired on Sony Television. I personally have seen footage of GCC in lot of their episodes)
You can find images for other sports at their official website.
2. Mira-Bhayandar Sports Complex: Aimed to produce future national and international medal winners for the country, this sports complex is yet to open its gates and start functioning. Although, it is supposed to have good facilities like Tennis, Swimming, Table Tennis, Carrom, Badminton, Gym, Squash but cannot do much with the building not being it a state of operation. I mean it’s not operating and functional till now. “Kaale Megha Kaale Megha Paani toh Barsssssaaoooo…..”. Lets hope for it to open soon.
Location: New Golden Nest

3. Jesal Park Chowpatty: The above 2 facilities might drill a hole in your pocket. But this one is very much pocket friendly. You can get to involve in sporting activities like Cricket, Volleyball, Football, Skating , Badminton etc free of cost here.
The best out of best for the typical Indian…:D. We like things which are free.
Location: Bhayandar Chowpatty. 10 Mins from Bhayandar Station East.
I couldn’t get an updated image from the net. There is actually a garden now where you see a ground in the picture above. However, you do have better grounds in Chowpatty elsewhere. I hope you get the idea of the place. Well thats it…..
Others: You can check for other avenues like Asmita Club(Near Mira Road Station), Bangladesh ground(Bhayandar west), Blue Moon Club(Golden Nest)…
