Burlington Tennis Club is the quintessential family summer club experience. They are a member-owned, not-for-profit swim and tennis club hidden in South Burlington right next to the UVM athletic facilities.  Their season typically runs from mid-May to October (weather permitting). They offer award winning swim and tennis programs, a relaxed atmosphere, and a location often described as “an oasis.” Their facilities include a 8-lane, 25-yard pool and 8 beautiful clay tennis courts.

Tennis: BTC maintains the finest 8 HarTru clay tennis courts in the area. Members may reserve courts using our on-line system. Tennis involves the whole family at BTC including tennis lessons, a junior tennis team adult drop-ins and a Club Championship.


Pool: Their pool is 8 lanes by 25 yards.  It is 8 feet deep at the diving end and 3.5 feet deep at the shallow end. For younger children, there is also a 15′ x 20′ stair section which is 3 feet deep.  The BTC Swim Team provides a competitive swimming experience in a fun and positive social atmosphere.

I am looking forward to another summer for my family at BTC. This club is beautiful, friendly, and has all a kid needs in the summer: a fantastic tennis program and team, a competitive swim team, recreation programs in both, plus plenty of grass to run around on when kids are not playing tether ball, foosball, ping pong or climbing on the play structure. There's a great snack bar but also a couple of refrigerators and grills so that members can bring and prepare a poolside lunch or dinner to enjoy at one of the many picnic tables. The views of the Green Mountains is incredible from the porch overlooking the clay tennis courts. And there are plenty of options for adults: adult tennis programs, paddle tennis, adult-only swim times in the pool, and just a wonderful, social atmosphere....more

Caveat: BTC is so important to me and my family, I joined to board to help as best I could. One of the best things my parents did for me 40 years ago (gulp) was bring us here.

BTC is our home in the summer. My wife, children, and I are there nearly every day. There are obvious attractions: a giant pool in the hot summer, the best clay courts within a day's drive, a swim team that will turn a sinker into a swimmer, a quiet oasis in the middle of Burlington.

The more subtle benefits, though, are the ones that keep us and our friends coming back - namely, the vibe. We speak about it to each other, we hear about it when we survey our members. BTC is a wonderful combination of mellow and exciting with no pretension or formality. There are almost 2 dozen picnic tables distributed around the property, multiple grills and fridges, and a BYOB policy that leads to multiple families meeting for dinner 7 nights a week. Our children make friends and grow socially among kids they don't know from school in a safe, but somewhat unstructured, environment. It's a member-owned, volunteer just show up, hit some balls, take a dip, and watch the sun set over Mt. Mansfield while you enjoy your cold, local beverage with your friends and family.

I am writing this review in the middle of March. It's killing me that I have to wait another 8-10 weeks until we open.
