IN SRI LANKA. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF THE CLUB SHALL BE THE PROMOTION OF SWIMMING, WATER-POLO AND LIFE SAVING. THE CLUB IS ALSO PROMOTING OTHER RECREATIONAL AND SOCIAL ACTIVITIES.
The Club founded in 1933, is primarily a sporting club with focus towards aquatic sports. It has the distinction of having three swimming pools, one as the main pool, other as a training pool and the kiddies’ pool.Additionally, we have three clay Tennis courts with two of them flood lit, two Indoor Badminton courts and two tables in air-conditioning for Snooker & Billiards with one for Pool. The Club also has 2 Squash courts.The Clubhouse consists of a separate Dining area with two Bars, a Restaurant, Gym, Table tennis and a Sports shop. In house channel music played by our resident DJ, Junkeer’s Record Bar, for over 3 decades, plays softly throughout the Clubhouse.An interesting feature of the Club is its location in the middle of an elite residential area – Colombo 7. As a result, the Club is within easy access to all concerned at all times.
From obscure and frugal beginnings did the present premier Aquatic Club arise, a Club which today amidst its posh surroundings and modern appointments boast of a membership of over 6300 members. Today Bakmaha Ulela, Otter Splash, Otter Gala and Otter Night are some of the regular events. The present President Mr. Suresh De Silva, along with the rest of the General Committee Members strives hard to put Otters in the limelight of current sport and social events in the Country.
