Dhaka Officers' Club at Ramna

Officers' Club: main office building

Newly built Auditorium

Tennis courts

Covered badminton and swimming
Dhaka Officers' Club: It was established in 1967 on 4.5 acres land in a picturesque setting at Ramna (Bailey Road). Its membership is open only to government officers and the officers of semi-government or autonomous bodies. The land with a colonial building was once given to the club by the PWD (Public Works Dept.). The government also provided funds to construct an auditorium, covered badminton complex, swimming pool and tennis courts etc. The club has now about 2,000 members and run by an executive committee headed by the cabinet secretary of the government. Its members are elected through secret ballot every two years. The club has a library, a newly built 2 storey auditorium, three tennis courts, and facilities to play badminton, table tennis, billiard, cards, chess etc.
The Officers' Club organizes contributory dinners and ‘housie sessions’ periodically. It also has a women's committee that designs and implements social welfare activities with funds generated by the club. To generate income, its auditorium and pavilion is rented out to outside parties seeking to use the space for specific functions including weddings.
