Established in 1863, it was a successor to the original Colombo Club (established in the early 1800s), and by 1899 administered five different sports via their ownership/establishment of the Colombo Cricket Club (established informally in 1832; formally in 1863), the Colombo Hockey and Football Club (established in 1892), and the Queen's Club (squash and tennis; established in 1899). Until 1964, the social club was exclusive to Europeans (the cricket club having had a similar policy until 1962)- the first Sri Lankan Chairman of the Gymkhana Club was P.S.C. Fernando, while the sporting clubs saw their first local captains in the 1970s: Colombo Cricket Club: Travis Fernando (1971) CH&FC, rugby: Bryan Baptist (1971) CH&FC, hockey: Colonel S. Gajendran (1972)
