    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.
