Jimmy’s Snooker Club

‘Snooker club’ is the best place to spend some leisure time for many of us. And if you are a true snooker devotee than you will get to know how important these snookers clubs are. Well, for me it is certainly refreshing,  to hear about the opening of new Snooker Club. However,  the availability of these snooker clubs are insufficient. Many of the snooker clubs are way too crowded and have limited number of snooker tables as compared to the cueists. In Bahria Town, we have many options for ‘A’ standard snooker clubs. There are more than five snooker clubs are active in Bahria Town, i.e Strickers Snooker Club, Friends Snooker, Black Snooker Club etc.

 

Now recently, there is another snooker club in Bahria Town that has opened by the name of ‘Jimmy’s Snooker Club’. The soft opening of this snooker club was held about two weeks ago. But now its been three days this snooker club has officially opened. Jimmy’s Snooker Club has more than 8 snooker tables. Normally, you will find no more than 4 snooker tables in any snooker club. So, the number of snooker tables is quite sufficient so far to avoid waiting. Currently, there is no separate refreshment area or canteen in this club, but in the meantime you can get ‘Coffee, Chae and Cold drinks’. Secondly, they are planing on it, to establish a proper canteen and will be available in a few days.

 

Discount offer:

The price of one snooker set is Rs 120/- before discount. But due to its official opening in Bahria Town, they’re now offering flat 20% discount. Furthermore, they have not decided yet when this discount offer will  end.

 

Location:

Jimmy’s Snooker Club is located at 221-B, Titanium heights, Tulip ext block sector C commercial zone. It is near to Bahria Golf & country club and honey beans restaurant.

Yoga Centre In Bahria Town

I was never fond of this Yoga stuff and I had never been near to any Yoga center. There are many reasons behind this. Honestly, I never took interest in Yoga that why people are getting into it. For me it was one of the most boring and passionless activity for health. Because we have so many other thought-provoking options for our mental & physical health. Secondly, mostly people are engaged in other activities like joining a gym, sports clubs, jogging, exercises etc. These activities are more fascinating to all of us as compare to Yoga.

In my teens I also believed that it was only related to Indians and Hindus, I thought that it was a part of their worship. Well it is funny though, but after some time I realized that how wrong I was to think that way at some instant.

After eyeing on it, I have seen many people in all over the world who are following it in their daily routines. And I got to know that it has so many health benefits including breathing techniques, relief for body pains, mind relaxation and meditation. Moreover, there are very minimum side effects and injury chances while doing Yoga. One of the research also indicates that this is the sixth most commonly used health practice among women & men. Keeping these facts in mind Yoga trend has been adopted by many of us. People are now gradually affiliating to yoga more. Due to this there are more yoga art centers being established now.

The main reason to writing this all is that  Yoga art centre is also going to open soon in Bahria town. Before this there isn’t any specific yoga center for the residents of Bahria town. W.A Tai Yoga is a well known name in Pakistan for Yoga, Karate & Ninja. It first started almost 37 years ago and its first branch is located at CC block phase 4 DHA. Now, W.A Tai yoga center are going to open in sector C, they’ve already placed a front board, booking has opened and renovation work is in-process. The management told me it will take not more than 2 weeks to be fully operational.

Furthermore, they haven’t decided yet about the fee structure they will finalise it before opening. But the owner of this centre told me that they will set some discounts keeping in view of their official opening.

Tennis have a different fee, which I remember is Rs. 5,000/- per month.

Why Fee:

If Bahria Town is charging fee then it should provide the proper environment for these games. Badminton is not an outdoor game and Tennis is not played on road. Why are you charging fee then?

Fee has only done one good that crowd has vanished. Now you don’t have to wait long for your turn.

Polo Ground In Bahria Town

Park in Johar block is said to become a polo ground. Machinery is working in great speed. According to Bahria Town workers, this ground will be completed before end of this year 2015.

Effect On Plots:

This thing will also effect the prices of plot in Johar block. Normally people don’t like plots in front of playing grounds. This thing happened in BB block, Sector D as well. Where Bahria has planned to give ‘Mini Golf Ground’ and then they started a cricket academy. Firstly facing mini golf ground was considered as a good location but it becomes opposite in case of cricket ground.

Other Point Of View:

Well above was about the rates of Johar block facing that ground. Otherwise this Polo Ground will add another feature in Bahria Town Lahore. It is quite possible that people who love to play that sports would like to buy plots in front of this ground. Moreover that ground will give a pleasant look from the terrace of houses and people start liking it.

Well in any case we’ll have a great another game to play in Bahria Town.

Gyms In Bahria Town

Firstly there was only one gym in Bahria Town. That gym was of the society itself. Now we have two more private gyms in Bahria Town Lahore.

One is with the name of ‘Cuts’ in Umer block commercials. It is in basement of 8 marla corner commercial building. Fee is Rs. 1500/- (gents) and Rs. 1800/- (ladies). Good thing is that it is also opened in morning time. Bahria Gym don’t open in morning for gents.
