Social clubs in Pakistan

There are many social and country clubs throughout modern Pakistan, a legacy of the British Raj.[1] Many of the historically established clubs within Pakistan were founded in the British era, and a few more recent creations have stuck to the traditions associated with the traditional clubs.

There are perhaps a dozen elite social clubs within Pakistan that act as focal points for the nations economic elite owing to their high membership fees and terms of admittance, which usually requires a recommendation or two from an existing member or members.
