Squash for Adults

GCC offers many ways for adults to get involved with the game of squash. We run adult clinics, in-house leagues, doubles clinics, tournaments, social events, ladies clinics, and inter-club teams. 

In-house leagues: Our box leagues give players an opportunity to meet and compete with players on their skill level. Players arrange match times themselves, to accommodate work and family schedules. 

Ladies clinics: We run hour-long ladies' clinics throughout the week, in both morning and evening time slots to accommodate working schedules. 

Calcuttas: Adult tournaments and calcuttas, run throughout the year, are a great and popular way for players at all levels to compete and have a great time! 

Squash for Juniors

Junior clinics: Our junior clinics (Squash for Tots, Beginners, Intermediate, Elites) cover the full range of squash skills. Early levels work on such fundamentals as grip, contact, and swing. Advanced levels graduate to rallying and drills, up through advanced strategy for serious tournament players.

Summer camps: First-class squash mentoring is mixed in with fun and games to create an infectious atmosphere where junior players want to stay for more than just one week.

Grand Prix: This is one of our most popular in-house junior events! We play round robin matches using American scoring to give every junior maximum match play. Players accumulate points, with prizes going to the top six finishers at the end of the season.

Cricket At The Cricket Club

Few people are aware that at one time the sport of cricket, which is now watched and played by hundreds of millions worldwide, was a major sport on the East Coast, the hub being Philadelphia! As its name implies, Germantown Cricket Club was started as a club to play cricket, and GCC is still known as one of the premier cricket grounds in the nation! Each Spring the Club is a host venue for the Philadelphia International Cricket Festival, a charity event featuring the top teams from across the nation, and around the globe.

Cricket is a team sport with 11 players with many similarities to baseball. If you are thinking about taking up the game, or merely want to cheer on our team at the PICF, check out this cheat sheet to understand the rules of the game.
