November 19-22, 2015

WELCOME

The Jimmy Dunn Tournament Weekend is always the largest event of the year at The Racquet Club of Philadelphia. The club fills with members, and guests from all over the country, for a celebration of sport. Not leaving a minute to spare, last year the Squash, Doubles Squash, Court Tennis, and Racquets courts were filled without a break from Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon. This year is looking to be no different. Regardless of your ability (beginner to pro) the Pro Shop prides itself on arranging competitive draws for people at every level. We look forward to seeing you all in November!

STOUT VS. HOPTON

We are also extremely excited to be hosting the 2015 Singles Racquets World Championship Match. The first leg of this championship will take place on Saturday, November 21st. The Racquet Club is known to have one of the fastest and truest courts in the world so this match is not to be missed. James Stout and Will Hopton are traveling to Philadelphia from New York and Chicago respectively, where both gentlemen are club pros at the top of their game. This match between two consummate retrievers will surely have some of the longest and most athletic rallies we’ve ever seen. Tickets to this match are required due to limited seating and can be requested using the form at the bottom of this page.
