Welcome to the Brattleboro Outing Club

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to those who are most vulnerable in our community, the Brattleboro Outing Club’s Tennis, Rowing and Paddling Programs will remain closed until further notice.

Program registrations will open at our new website in early April and we depend on your support at this time. Please consider joining early in anticipation of a great season of GOOD SPORTS later this spring, summer and fall!

The BOC Board will use the latest information from the Vermont Department of Health and Governor Scott’s directives to determine when we should open our facilities and programs for the regular season for Tennis, Rowing and Paddling. We will post notification with updates and details as soon as possible at the website and via direct email and the upcoming Spring Newsletter.

Please do your very best to keep yourself and others safe by staying home. Visit www.cdc.gov and Vt Dept of Health for more information.

Tennis and Rowing registrations will open after April 7th
– thanks for your patience.



The Brattleboro Outing Club offers four distinct programs throughout the year: cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, paddling, rowing, and tennis.

Each program welcomes new members to join throughout the open season and offers lessons and special events to all ages. Most important of all, meet and have fun with other outdoor enthusiasts.

Founded in 1922 by local sports enthusiast Fred Harris, the Brattleboro Outing Club (BOC) is one of the oldest civic outdoor sports associations in the country. It’s mission to “encourage, develop, and promote family outdoor life and good fellowship” has remained unchanged over the decades. It also keeps fees low by relying on an active volunteer base. As a result, BOC offers a great opportunity to join and participate in affordable outdoor activities year-round.

Check out our six beautifully maintained red clay tennis courts and rustic clubhouse; learn to row and enjoy access to our dock and boats; join other canoers and kayakers on our scenic paddling trips; or cross-country ski or snowshoe on miles of beautifully-groomed trails. Most important of all, meet and have fun with other outdoor enthusiasts.
