The Chiang Mai Gymkhana Club

Thailand’s Oldest Sports Club – Open to all

The first squash court, made entirely from teak, was erected in 1898 at the Chiang Mai Gymkhana Club in the first year of the organisations existence. Sadly, the court was demolished in 1985 after some 90 years of use

Today we have two courts with balcony viewing. Both courts have ceiling fans.


The squash courts are open to members and the public. There is no booking system just turn up and play. If there is a queue, play 3 sets only, then rotate.
