  SPLASH OF GOOD FUN  


Take a dip in the swimming pool of the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad (MCH) to parry the torment of the blazing Hyderabadi Sun. The MCH has been successfully maintaining this world-class pool for the past 30 years. Located in the heart of the Twin Cities near Paradise, the B. V. Guru Moorthy Swimming Pool facing the Gymkhana Grounds is spread over two and a half acres.

The 'big pool' is 50 metres long and 20 metres wide, and another one called 'baby pool' for kids, draw most of the crowd. Established in 1971, the centre was inaugurated by the then Municipal Commissioner of Hyderabad, C N Sastri. There are twenty-five staff members including 15 trained coaches who conduct swimming lessons for children and adults. G Umesh, Chief coach and Person In-Charge has taken it as a challenge to improve the standards of this swimming pool.

Thanks to his efforts, two of the three students who participated at the Asia Pacific Championships won medals. Chitra Raj and Santhosh Chari have both won bronze medals in 1994 and 1999 respectively. The centre also conducts Karate classes and has a gymnasium. Visitors can also play carom. A skating and Boxing Ring will be inaugurated soon. Every year, the MCH organises a 'One month Summer Camp' here.

CHARGES: Students and Kids: Rs.100 Government Employees: Rs.150 General Public: Rs.250 Timings: 6 a.m. - 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. - 7 p.m.
