City Sports Complex provides sporting facilities such as swimming, tennis, squash, basketball, table tennis, taekwondo, skating, etc.

There are five courts, the oval-shaped tennis court a unique facility of its kind in the country, it has a capacity of 5000 people and has served as a venue for international matches. An international boxing event was also staged here. In summer 2011, the CSC has undergone renovation of its tennis courts, which have also been repainted. However, the squash courts are in a state of neglect. A tennis coach is available in the morning and evening. In addition, CSC plays host to many tennis events organized by the STA (Sindh Tennis Association) every year. Membership is available quite easily. Starting fees are Rs 8000, and then about Rs 1000 per month. However, one must be warned that the timings for playing tennis are extremely limited: just 7am to 10am and 5pm to 8pm. The limited time means that there is a lot of rush, especially in the summer holidays. There is a mosque in the premises where people from the vicinity come for prayers. Also there is a jogging track that is accessible to all. In order to generate additional revenue, the premises of CSC are frequently used for wedding ceremonies.
