Welcome to The Cynwyd Club, one of Philadelphia Main Line’s premier private clubs for tennis, squash, fitness, banquets, and socializing. Since its founding in 1913, The Cynwyd Club has been a favorite place for countless tennis and squash enthusiasts and many multi-generational families. Today, the Club has over 300 members of all ages.
Situated on two and a half acres in a quiet residential neighborhood in Bala Cynwyd just outside of Philadelphia, the Club boasts eleven outdoor Har-Tru tennis courts, five international squash singles courts, two squash doubles courts, a well-equipped fitness center, and complete locker room facilities. In addition, the Club’s beautifully-appointed 35,000-square foot Tudor-style clubhouse includes the Hunt Bar and Bistro which is open seven days per week and provides fine dining in an intimate setting on Monday through Friday evenings.
Banquets & Events
The Club’s banquet facilities feature an exquisite ballroom which can host parties and meetings for up to 225 people, an elegant but cozy lounge for cocktails, luncheons, and smaller gatherings, and a bright and airy sun porch for receptions. Please join us for a wedding or other special event, an early morning workout, a few hours of tennis, squash, or fitness, or a delicious meal to chat with friends. You are certain to enjoy your time spent at The Cynwyd Club.
After months of extensive planning and gathering enthusiastic feedback from area residents and the township, The Cynwyd Club expects to begin construction of a full-size swimming pool, a smaller wading pool, and a snack bar in April 2017, with an anticipated opening in mid-summer of 2017. The pool, which will feature multiple lanes for swimming competitions, will complement the Club’s excellent squash, tennis, fitness, and dining facilities, as well as its golfing arrangement for members at nearby Bala Golf Club. In order to make room for the swimming pool, three tennis courts will be removed.
The Cynwyd Club has a long and proud history in tennis and squash. Many members trained with the legendary Norm Bramall who was with the Club from 1922 until 1984. Our most prominent tennis champions include Vic Seixas, who won the Wimbledon singles title in 1953 and the U. S. Open singles title in 1954, and Newt Meade, who has won numerous age group national and international events. Bill Tilden, the world’s top tennis player of the 1920s, often played at The Cynwyd Club during his prime. Twelve “Cynwydians” are members of the US Squash Hall of Fame, far more than from any other club or organization in the country.
