Ramgarhia Sabha

How it all began?

E-mail Print

In 1959, well respected people now, had come to England to earn a living which was very hard for them. First of all they had to find a place to live, which was very difficult, because as people saw the face of the person they were going to rent a room to, they turned them away.

Finally they received a place to live. Then they decided to build a Gurdwara for the generation to come, as there was only one Gurdwara in the country at that time. They searched for land, and finally received some in Southall on Oswald Road. Where they purchased the land (in 1969) there was a laundry, so a lot of hard work had to be put in to turn a laundry into a Gurdwara.

There was no one to pay the workers so every thing was done voluntarily. The construction of Ramgarhia Sabha started in 1970. The workers worked hard voluntary on Sundays and after work and made the making of Ramgarhia Sabha their main priority.

This is in Oswald Road. In 1969 there was a laundry on the site. The Sikh community built the temple themselves, opened in 1971, and extended since.

Karate - History

E-mail Print

Karate sessions are held regularly at the Ramgarhia Hall, The Broadway, Southall, and continues to prove to be the most popular sport in the area membership. Experience has shown that the demand for the sport is still increasing, and it is very encouraging to see that some young girls and ladies have also joined our club to develop in self-defence techniques.

The club has the services of a Mr B S Sahans as the Karate coach, who is also a coach to the National Karate Association (ASKA) and is a recognised European Referee. His approach to the teaching and coaching in Karate has encouraged many to join our club.

We believe that our karate section has a great deal of potential and some of our Club’s notable achievements speak for themselves.

Over the years, an average of over 100 individual and team trophies are won by the Club at various major tournaments such as London Youth Games, and All Styles Karate Championships both held at Crystal Palace.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

The Ramgarhia Sports Club (RSC) came into being around 1974 when certain members of the community with interests in sports and games agreed to offer their free time and experience to train and develop the younger members of the community in sports like hockey and karate.

Considerable interest was shown by the young generation and within a short time the coaching sessions and classes in sports ran to full capacity, and the need to deploy additional staff became necessary. Scheduling of the coaching sessions on a weekly basis was the only way available to contain the enthusiasm of the young participants, some of whom came from places as far away as Harrow, Greenford, Wembley, Hayes, Uxbridge, Hanwell, Ealing, Brentford and even Watford in Hertfordshire.

In the absence of adequate facilities, newer facilities to accommodate for the rising membership became e a paramount objective. As a consequence various locations had to be found where indoor training and sports could be undertaken.
