Welcome to The Germantown Cricket Club
Within Philadelphia beats the heart of America’s history and birth. A city of international acclaim and architectural beauty, Philadelphia is fast paced and full of the proverbial hustle and bustle. A place where the masses teem and the work never slows, Philadelphians have few refuges of true peace and tranquility away from the pressures of city living.
Located 15 minutes from centre city Philadelphia on fourteen acres hidden away in Germantown is the Germantown Cricket Club. Set foot on our beautiful campus and step inside buildings designed by McKim, Meade and White and listed on the National Register of Historic Places and you will forget that you are only fifteen minutes from Center City Philadelphia.
Germantown Cricket Club is strategically placed, in both geography and philosophy, to accommodate your desire to get away from the city without having to leave the city. We offer the Grand Ballroom for Weddings, Banquets, and Formal Affairs. Our Manheim and Clarke Rooms will satisfy your meeting and dining needs for business as well as pleasure.
GCC is a private country club in an urban setting that offers a full range of athletic and social activities. Play a match against your own personal rival on one of our spectacularly groomed grass tennis courts. Play where some of the tennis greats, including Bill Tilden, sharpened their skills or, if the weather is too hot or cold, enjoy our four newly renovated indoor courts. Let your cares float away as you relax in our beautiful pool and enjoy a bite to eat at our pool side snack bar.
Challenge both yourself and your opponent of choice in our state of the art Squash Center. Strive to achieve the health you desire in our modern Fitness Center with a personal trainer who will design a fitness program just for you. You can even have a birthday party for your children in our four lane bowling alley with bumpers.
Dine with your family and friends in our stately nineteenth century clubhouse either on the porch overlooking the grass tennis courts, in our warm Grille Room or the formal Manheim Dining Room, or plan a party in our Grand Ballroom.
So whether you join us for a wedding or other special event, early morning workout or a day full of tennis, squash or swimming or just to dine; you will enjoy every moment of time spent at the Germantown Cricket Club.
