Clube Tennis de Gaspar Dias has an interesting legacy spanning over 75 years. In 1934, Mrs. Josephine Hogaz, an American industrial magnate, introduced the game of tennis in Goa. She also provided the finance for the making of the first tennis court in the Club premises. This game became popular with its members leading to the introduction of another court a few years later.
Over the past 80 years under the leadership of various individuals, the club has innovated and improved keeping in the mind the requirement of its members. The club offers facilities for playing badminton, squash, table tennis, billiards and tennis within its premises.
