The Germantown Cricket Club is located approximately 15 minutes
from downtown Philadelphia. Our facilities include 45 tennis courts

beautiful dining facilities located within our historic clubhouse.
During the tournament we invite you to make use of all that GCC has
to offer. For directions please visit our website -
Due to the heat and humidity our region has been experiencing,
coupled with the amount of play on our courts, the grass courts are
showing signs of stress and unevenness. Though we look forward to
your tournament play we felt compelled to share with you the court
conditions, as they are in less than pristine shape. We have asked
local grass clubs for their support and some back draws will be
moved to these facilities. Again, we appreciate your support,
patience and participation and look forward to another great week
