About Us

Beatrice SC was founded by a group of Arts & Sports loving friends hailing from a small town in Kerala called Thalassery (തലശ്ശേരി) also known as Tellicherry. Thalassery is a land of sports. The municipal stadium at Thalassery is the place where Cricket was first played in India. Thalassery has produced plenty of national level and state level players in Hockey, Basketball, Volleyball, Football, Cricket and you name it, in all kinds of sports and games. The people of Thalassery are well known for their love for Arts and Sports and these bunch of friends during the year of 1975 had no second thought in deciding about  opening the Sports Club. The founder members were a bunch of enthusiastic and tremendously passionate people about the game of Hockey, Basketball & Volleyball which were one of the prime games played at Thalassery.  The name “Beatrice” was given to the Club as a token of respect to a favorite teacher of the founders who taught them at the Sacred Heart High School, Thalassery.The Club got officially registered in the year 1977.

During September 2010 we got a chance to speak with two of the founder members of the club, Mr. Mohamed Nizar A.P.M. and Mr. Sayeed Oliyath What an evening! powered with nostalgia as they remembered.

Mohamed Nizar ”The group of friends who formed the club way back during 1975-77 comprised of Tamattan Mustafa, Ponmanichi Aboo, Keyi Usman, Sayeed Oliyath, Aappi O.V., Maliyekkal Azad, Latheef, Nizamudheen, to name a few. But later, Mr. Abdulla P. and myself were not fully involved in all the day to day activities due to our unexpected departure to Kuwait and Dubai. The club thereafter was totally managed by the rest of members, of course our support always remained.”

Mohamed Nizar A.P.M.

Sayeed Oliyath”How come the name ’Beatrice’? Well, the club was named ’Beatrice’ as a token of respect to a renowned teacher of The Secret Heart (Convent) High School, Sister Beatrice, who was a favorite teacher of us, the founders.”

Sayeed Oliyath

To pen the history of a club which has been inspirational over three decades, which had won a bunch of titles in all participated sports and contributed a number of path breaking sports personalities is a mammoth task. So we approached one of the prominent figures of the club, Mr. Azad Maliyekkal for a talk around the serenity of Diera Corniche, to know how it has been being part of Beatrice sports club right from the start.As we started discussing sports in Thalasserry and how Beatrice was founded, Mr. Azad recollects, “The Club was formed by a group of collective friends during late 70’s for music and sports. Everybody from the group had passion for entertainment and that was the driving force.The club was initially named as ‘Beat Ventures’ and the main activity during that period was late night music.
I remember our first club house at Durbar Hotel ‘maadam’ facing the Councilor’s house and the regular late night music
during that period turned out to be a big nuisance for the neighbors which eventually ended in a police complaint! That was the spark which announced a club has arrived and in no time became town’s most popular club. ‘Beatrice’ as it was named by then was an integral part of all sports activities happening in the town and had successful Hockey, Basketball and Volleyball teams. Beatrice also had association with leading Cricket club in the town. Something which was great during that period as I see is, irrespective of whichever club or sports played, everybody at the end were close friends. The harder we fought at the ground or court, the thicker the friends we were off the field. Build such kind relationship with fellows is the message what I would like to convey to the younger generation.”
He is one of the founder members of the club, known for his stylish dunks and often referred to as ‘Beatrice all-time favorite star’.Having represented Kerala State for Basketball, he has always been a role model and motivation for the generations that followed.His contributions to the club as founder member, player, team coach & manager has been phenomenal and one of reason behind clubs stupendous success.Currently, he is the Beatrice Global Director for Relationship & Marketing based out of Dubai.
