Sardar Club was established in the beginning of the 20th century. Work on the Clubhouse started in 1901 under the instructions of H.H. Maharaja Sardar Singh ji (erstwhile Maharaja of Jodhpur after whom the Club is named). The site was chosen near the Chammi Polo ground and the Jodhpur Golf Club, which had started a few years earlier and was later amalgamated with the Sardar Club.
The Sardar Club building is built in typical Indo-Colonial style and cost Rs. 15,000/- to build. The members of the club included the aristocracy of Jodhpur, British officers and prominent citizens of Marwar State. The club played a vital role in encouraging sports in this city and many prominent National players are a product of this institution.
Sardar Club boasts of many facilities including an 18 hole Golf, Tennis Courts, Swimming Pool, Squash Courts, Billiards and Pool Tables, Indoor and Open Air Dining facilities, a fully functional Bar, Library, Card Room, Lawns for private parties etc.
The management has played a major role in trying to revive the club to its former glory and many Cups and Trophies have been revived and others are in the process of being revived. Amongst new constructions are the swimming pool and renovation of the hut alongside the pool for hosting poolside parties.
