The Bombay Physical Culture Association (BPCA) was established on 29th June 1935, by three eminent personalities namely Late Padmashri Dr. Krishnaji Shripad alias Bapusaheb Mhasker, Late Namaskaracharya Shri. J. K. alias Bhausaheb Soman and Late P. H. alias Nanasaheb Khadilkar.
These founders were initially inspired by the Akhil Maharashtra Sharirik shikshan Mandal, an Association which was established in 1927 at Pune and working in the field of Physical Education in Maharashtra State. In the same year, they established “Bombay Physical Culture Association” informally, which is also known as “Mumbai Sharirik Shikshan Mandal” in Marathi version.
In the year 1960 the institution has acquired the area administered 9152 sq. yard from Mumbai Municipal Corporation on permanent lease at Naigaum Cross Road, Wadala, Mumbai-31, where the institution has provided an ideal infrastructure and facilities including playground, stadium, laboratory, hostel, administrative building etc. under one roof, which is popularly known as Bharatiya Krida Mandir.
At present the “Bombay Physical Culture Association” is a registered public trust under the Bombay Public Trust Act of 1950 as well as it has been also registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860. The Association has today on its role more than its 1000 active institutions, clubs, akhadas, schools, colleges and gymnasiums representing the vast multude and cross section of the cosmopolitan public of Greater Mumbai.
