Lord Gulam K Noon (2)

Indian Gymkhana Clubs’ Senior Vice President  

It is with great regret we have to inform members and guests that our senior vice president lord noon has passed away on 27.10.2015. We convey with deepest sympathy to his family.

Lord Gulam Noon, one of Britain’s most prominent Indian-origin peers of the uk, passed away today at the age of 79. He had been battling with liver cancer for the past two years. He had briefly recovered following chemotherapy but his health deteriorated over the last six months.


Dear fellow Gymkhana members, I am truly delighted to announce that we have appointed ​​Ian Jennings and Simon Mason, as our Performance Director and Director of​ ​Strategy & Communications, respectively.

​​Ian Jennings, MBE, is a former England international player and last season was Performance​ ​Director at Guildford Hockey Club. He has previously coached England Senior​ ​Women’s Teams, England under-21 and under-18 Men. He has coached​ ​internationally as a consultant for South Africa Ladies prior to the Olympic​ ​Games, with the Fiji National Team, and worked extensively in Australia for 3​ ​years.
Simon Mason ​is a former Great Britain goalkeeper and is also a well-known commentator on​ ​televised international hockey matches. He participated in three Olympics forGB and played last season for Guildford 1st XI in the Now Pensions​ ​National League. He is co-owner and Managing Director of Mercian Sports Company,a specialist hockey equipment company. He has served as President of the​ ​England Hockey Board and is a member of a number of committees for both the​ ​European and International Hockey Federations, including sitting as a Director​ ​on the Executive Board of the European Hockey Federation.
Ian Jennings, as Performance Director will take charge of ​coaching across the club, focussing on the role of 1st team coach,but including club wide player development, junior programme oversight and​ ​junior player integration into the senior programme. His role will also include​ ​development of junior player pathways, integration of England Hockey cores​ ​kills within the club’s activities and he will assist with a development ofthe clubs social and fundraising activities.

Simon Mason will be overseeing the club’s internal and ​external communications and assisting the development of the club’s strategic​ ​direction, helping to drive The Gymkhana Hockey Project at both a performance​ ​level and amongst the club as a whole.

Kamal Naqvi, chairman of the Indian Gymkhana Hockey Club ​said, “we are delighted to bring in twosuch distinguished and passionate figures from the English hockey community tothe Gymkhana Hockey Club and it marks a turning point in our development as we​ ​approach our club’s centenary year.”
Ian Jennings MBE commented: The Gymkhana hockey programme provides an exciting opportunity to workwith a club with a fantastic vision. As the club approaches its centenary,they clearly have a burning desire to create a high-performance, inclusive andwelcoming environment. I look forward to working with some incredibly talentedplayers and merging the flair and skill for which they are renowned with aEuropean structure and discipline. The future undoubtedly has some challengeswithin it, but the potential at Gymkhana is huge and I welcome the chance to bepart of their vision and future successes.

Simon Mason said: Sometimesopportunities present themselves from the most unexpected quarters. At a timewhen my own future playing career was in question, a timely email from Kinde Hanspal(Gymkhana Club Captain) outlined a vision and asked some questions that wereboth exciting and intriguing. Having discussed a plan with them for a while now,their energy and enthusiasm for the future of the club is infectious. They wantto broadcast the positives and strengths that the club possesses, to integrateit within the England hockey family and dispel some of the myths andpreconceived ideas that exist. Their future vision involves the entire club,not just the performance section, from the youngest junior to the multiple goldmedal winning Olympians in the veterans section. Quite simply I can’t wait tobegin working with them, the chance to be part of something special that couldhave a lasting effect on a club with an international reputation is quiteunique.

As chairman, I am delighted by these appointments but for this project to succeed we shall need the support and assistance of our members. Ian and Simon are keen to present their vision to you and we shall arrange a presentation before the new season begins. I am sure that Ian and Simon will be warmly welcomed to our club by you all, as is our way, and that you will look for opportunities to help our club continue its development on and off the field.

Cricket Secretary’s 2015 New Season blog

DSC01036Hello and welcome to the new 2015 cricket season at Indian Gymkhana.

 With promotion secured by the 1’s last year to the Middlesex Premier League, this promises  to be an exciting year ahead, both on and off the field.

First a bit of good news, in 2014 we completed the construction of our three lane outdoor net facilities. The nets sit well in the landscape and are already making a massive difference to our coaching style and practice of players young and old. Please make use of the nets with your captains and age-group coaches.

There’s been a huge amount of behind-the-scenes work going on since the close of the 2014 season.  The square is looking fantastic. A special thank you to Dhiru Gosai for all his hard work in facilitating the winter work with our resident groundsman (Dave).

Following the 2014 AGM the cricket committee for the new season is as follows:

  1. Hon. Secretary       –           Sarbjit Dhillon
  2. Asst. Secretary       –           Harpal Bawa
  3. Club Captain           –           Davinder Rehncy
  4. 1st XI Captain          –           Rakesh Khade
  5. 2nd XI Captain         –           Anil Dhand
  6. 3rd XI Captain         –           Shariq Imam
  7. 4th XI Captain         –           Sohail Sheikh
  8. Colts Secretary      –           Sanjay Sood
  9. Fixture Secretary   –           Nutan Shah
  10. Treasurer                –           Chitrang Shah

If you are reading this for the first time and would like to join the club, please have a look at the contacts list and get in touch. We don’t bite and openly welcome quality and committed players!

I’d also like thank those who have already signed up to become members of the club. Our ambition and vision is dependent on a solid financial base so please pay your membership early and ensure you pay your match fees on the day. Don’t be that person everyone talks about!

I am convinced that with determination, resolve and a governing principle of family, recreation and good old-fashioned competitive (but fair) play, this will be an exciting year for us. The next few months, even weeks, present important milestones to achieve. This summer promises so many good times, actually make that fantastic times! Keep spreading the word.

Finally I’m crossing my fingers for a dry summer with light overnight rain so we get plenty of cricket and the pitches are hard and spinning.

Good Luck and please enjoy the season with a smile.

Sarbjit Dhillon
Hon. Secretary Cricket Section


Save Church Meadow Playing Fields For Sports In Hounslow

E Slide- New Size Indian Gymkhana Cricket Club’s Colts section has been very successful in recent years, growing from only 30 boys five years ago to over 150 boys and girls today. This growth has necessitated a search for additional playing grounds, but this process has been challenging.

You can Help : by following 2 steps 

1) Click the link and complete the E-PETITION

2) You will get an email from HM Government e-petitions, with Subject “HM Government e-petitions: Email address confirmation”, open that email and click the confirmation link given. 

Your vote will NOT be counted, until the confirmation link is clicked .. so please make sure you give correct email id and confirm it. 

In 2004 Hounslow Council advertised the derelict Church Meadow / Sutton Lane site for redevelopment. Since then Indian Gymkhana has expressed an interest, but discussions didn’t progress. Four years later Indian Gymkhana got back in touch with Hounslow Council to request assistance in redeveloping the site. A year later the Council was reviewing options for the site, which in the meantime had been leased to Saint Mark’s School. Since 2011/12 Indian Gymkhanas plans have apparently been with the Legal and Property Departments.

Every year that passes without an outcome is another year when children of the borough have less chance to play sports than they otherwise would, and another year that a historic sports ground lies derelict.

Last Game of the Season & Ravi Virdi Retiring

Thank you for your support for the Mens 1st team this season. The last game of the 13/14 season is on Sunday 23rd March at home starting at 2pm. Hope to see many of you supporting the team so we end the season on a high.

Sunday will also be the last National League game for Ravi Virdi as he hangs up his 1st team hockey stick. Ravi has served the club well playing in the 1st team continuously since he joined in 1996 and I hope you will join us to see him play his last game.

Ravi will continue to play in our lower XIs sharing his
