Cuttack club is said to be established in 1965. The club was then known as "Cuttack Debating Society" which was later-on named as "Station Club" by the Europeans, Sri John Beams (1837-1903), the then collector of Cuttack, (1873) has mentioned in his memoirs about this club. He also took over as commissioner from T.E. Ravenshaw for some period on 12th August 1873. He has highlighted that the club had facilites like lawn-tennis, billiards, whish and crochette. The club has been later on named as Cuttack club after Indians were allowed as members by the club. It also needs to be mentioned that Madhusudan Das was not allowed to be a member of this club which infuriated him thus he founded, "The Union club" in Mission road. The Late Maharaja Sri Ram Chandra Bhanj Deo of Mayurbhanj, was the first Indian to be the member of the club. The present strength of membership is about 900.
