Calcutta has a world-class football stadium in the Yuva Bharati Krirangan also called Salt Lake Stadium with the capacity of 122,000 which is primarily used as a football stadium and a 100,000-capacity stadium, mostly used for cricket, called the Eden Gardens. The Eden Gardens Stadium is the largest stadium of its kind for the game of cricket. Kolkata boasts of one of the largest race courses in Asia, the finest golf courses of its kind in the world Royal Calcutta Golf Club and one of the most beautiful tennis courts in the world South Club . Together they reflect remnants of a thriving sports culture based on the British inspired love for cricket, golf, tennis and equestrian events. Most people in Kolkata have two religious - the faith in which they were born, and their choice of support for one of the three big football teams in the city - East Bengal, Mohan Bagan and Mohammedan Sporting. Since everyone celebrates everyone else s religious festivals, all the fanaticism is reserved for the football-faith . It is not only football - though it has an edge - that people follow, they are cricket-crazy too. The world s greatest players have spoken about the experience of playing before an almost 100,000 strong, very vocal and equally appreciative crowd at Kolkata s Eden Gardens Stadium. Racing too is very popular and an ideal afternoon can be spent at Kolkata s excellent racecourse. Kolkata boasts of the world s second oldest golf courses at the Royal Kolkata Golf Club and the unique Ladies Golf Course. There are other good golf courses at the Tollygunge Club and the Army s Fort William. Hockey also has its following. Kolkata South Club is the venue for many a stirring national and international tennis battle and has been the nursery from which many of the country s tennis greats have sprung. Squash, badminton, basketball, volleyball and indoor sports also attract large crowds.
