Ox Ridge is a private club in Darien, Connecticut, that is quickly becoming one of the leading squash destinations in the US. Ox Ridge is organized as a non-profit with no required return on equity, enabling the club to deploy all of its resources on player development through the retention of the world's best coaches, members events, and training resources. Ox Ridge has a full range of programs for players of all levels and ages. The club provides an ideal set of opportunities to play year-round, for the beginner to avid enthusiast.
Juniors Ox Ridge’s junior program is focused on developing juniors through a combination of individualized attention, community match play and group clinics. Ox Ridge Clinics are currently available to members and non-members. Clinics run through the school year and are available at the Mini (under 5 years old), Beginner, Intermediate and Elite levels.
Ox Ridge Clinics are structured like survey classes, covering different parts of the game throughout the year (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer). They are structured to “stretch” the range of the developing player. Typical classes involve a combination of shot demonstration, practice drills, and match play.
Match Play sessions are 90-minute group playing sessions with multiple individual matches overseen by an Ox Ridge Pro. Each player will have an opportunity to play multiple matches with players of comparable skill level. The match play schedule is based on clinic level and is charged by the session at a rate of $75 per session for RMS Ox Elite, and $45 per session for Beginner and Intermediate Level Match Play. The following is the calendar for Match Play Sessions:
RMS Ox Tournament and Club Elite - Saturdays, 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Junior Development Program (JDP - Intermediate) - Saturdays, 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Beginner - Sundays, 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Summer Camps Ox Ridge Camps are meant to accelerate a player quickly over the summer. They typically last one week and focus on developing a full range of play within a short period of time. Please check our website in the Spring for information on 2023 Summer Camps.
