RACQUETS & SPORTS

Wilmington Country Club’s racquet sports draw nearly 40,000 plays each year between tennis, squash, paddle, and pickleball.

As a multi-year, award-winning facility, Wilmington Country Club has hosted prestigious events including the National Junior and Senior Tennis Championships, National Junior Squash Doubles, US Pro Squash Doubles Championships, Can-Am Cup, and both the tennis and squash Delaware State Championships. BOCCE Members can play night or day on the two regulation-sized Bocce courts located in the heart of the outdoor racquets facility. Throughout the summer months league play is available to all members interested in a little friendly competition. CROQUET This enjoyable social sport is played on our impeccably maintained grass courts from late spring through early fall. TENNIS IMPROVEMENT PROJECT Breaking ground in September 2019, the Tennis Improvement Project is expected to be completed in May 2020. This project includes three additional indoor tennis courts, a large and modern Racquet Shop, as well as expanded viewing areas.
