\newenvironment{mytabbing}{%
\begin{minipage}[t]{3in}

\begin{mytabbing}

If I want colored background for the column names (TAB-1 ...), do I have to work in some tabular (tabularx, etc.) environment, and I have no other option? Something like:

  • Please try with better option with the combination of tabularx and colortbl packages, instead of tabbing – MadyYuvi Sep 16 at 8:21

Here is the solution with the tabular environment.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[margin=1in]{geometry}
\usepackage{colortbl}
\usepackage{xcolor} 
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{tikz}

\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{2}
\newcommand{\cred}[1]{\color{red}#1}
\newcommand{\wt}[1]{\color{white}\textbf{#1}}

\begin{document}
    
    \begin{center}
        \begin{tabular}{llll}
            \rowcolor{gray!60} \wt{SOUTH} & \wt{WEST} & \wt{NORTH} & \wt{EAST} \\
            \tikz \draw (0,0) -- (1,0); & 1 $\clubsuit$   & Double & Pass\\
            1 $\cred{\blacklozenge}$ & Pass & 2 $\clubsuit$ & Pass \\
            2 $\cred{\blacklozenge}$ & Pass & 2 $\cred{\spadesuit}$& Pass \\
            \hspace{0.15cm}\textbf{?}  & & & \\
        \end{tabular}
    \end{center}
    
\end{document}

The ? is now centered.
