About The Club
The Nicol Squash Club is a community squash facility located in the East Side of Providence, Rhode Island. Housed in the Gorgi Family Squash & Education Center, a twelve-court squash facility (including a doubles court) with a study space and a pro shop, the Nicol Squash Club welcomes the public and offers both experts and newcomers the opportunity to learn and play squash easily and affordably. Residing on the exterior of Moses Brown School’s campus, the facility is also home to the Squashbusters of Providence.
The Nicol Squash Club is owned by the renowned Squash World Champion Peter Nicol. The club’s resident pro is seven-time Irish National Champion, Arthur Gaskin, a highly experienced coach who has worked with top US squash juniors and coached alongside Peter Nicol for years. The arrival of Nicol and Gaskin, two of the most respected squash coaches in the world, and the opening of the Gorgi Center, establishes Rhode Island as one of the preeminent squash destinations in the world.
The club offers annual and monthly memberships, lessons, clinics, league play, Peter Nicol’s signature junior coaching program, and a vibrant community brought together by squash. Members enjoy weekend tournaments hosted at the Club and an on-site pro shop with racquet stringing service.
“Growing up in Scotland, the squash club was affordable and open to the whole community,” says Nicol. “It was a place that brought people together. I couldn't be more proud and grateful to be a part of this new type of club in the US.”
