Hindú Club founded in 1919, is a sports club based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Mostly known for its rugby union team (which is member of the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires), the club hosts other activities such as football, field hockey, tennis, gymnastics, golf and bridge.
In rugby union, Hindú has become one of the most successful teams of Argentina, having won 16 titles since 1996 to present days.
In the 1910s, pupils of the La Salle college met to form a theatre group, then known as "Hindustánicos". After graduation, alumni would meet again and founded in 1919 a social, cultural and sporting venture known as the Hindú Club.
Its first location was in Pedro Echagüe street and only basketball was played there. Later the club would purchase an 83 hectare plot in Don Torcuato and start playing other sports, including rugby union for which Hindú Club is most famous today.
Hindú Club started playing rugby in 1935. However, the club had to wait until 1996 to win both its first URBA and Nacional titles. Since then, Hindú has become a powerhouse of Argentine rugby, winning several provincial and national titles.
