Why We Like This Place

  • It’s only a short distance from downtown Philadelphia. Though you’d never guess it from the pastoral grounds and secluded atmosphere, the Cricket Club is a convenient half-hour drive from the center of the city.
  • The ballroom is historic and stunning. This is “America’s Oldest Country Club”, and the room feels truly special, with antique furnishings, gleaming wood floors, towering arches and columns, and huge floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the green.
  • Outstanding service and attention to detail are their specialties. From the very start of your planning process, event professionals will help you navigate menu choices, decide on floor arrangements, and be there to coordinate with vendors on the day of your wedding.
