Fields Behind Paterson
There will be a few mats on-hand, but please bring your own if you have one.
Fit3D Body Scan
The Fit3D allows you to obtain a full 3D image of your body from a 40-second scan. This scan provides information
about your body measurements, weight, posture, composition, and wellness, and delivers
the data to you through a private account. Record multiple scans over time and track
your fitness progress!
Contact the Paterson front desk to set up a scan.
Both adult and youth courts are now open from dawn to dusk for the season.
In recognition of his leadership and love of the game, the tennis facilities at BCC
were dedicated in honor of the college's 6th president, Dr. Paul E. Raverta. The complex
boasts three standard adult courts and two "10 and Under" courts for children.
The Paul E. Raverta Tennis Complex, which is open to the public, was made possible by the Berkshire Bank Foundation,
Berkshire Bank Foundation—Legacy Region, Petricca Industries, USTA Western Mass, USTA
New England, and USTA National.
For more information about the courts, please call 413-236-1661.
