Since 1967, BSSC has been bringing people together to hit, kick, dunk, and catch balls of all shapes and sizes. More than 45,000 players join its leagues every year to compete in 12 different sports that range from field hockey and basketball to soccer and kickball. Men?s, women?s, and coed options help every player find a team more enjoyable to play with than one exclusively made up of imaginary friends. The club helps members stay active and socialize with a variety of outdoor adventures and social events, including pub crawls.

The club also organizes longer jaunts, such as day and weekend ski trips that take groups to snowy slopes or more involved weekend and week-long trips that venture beyond state and even national boundaries. The club?s seasoned travel experts plan each detail, freeing travelers from the hassle of booking accommodations or figuring out if a country only accepts secrets as currency.

In 1973, Mike Farny had a vision: to bring affordable outdoor recreation to the residents of metropolitan Boston. Opening the Charles River Canoe Service that year, Farny became an instrumental voice in efforts to clean up the river, encouraging people to canoe, kayak, and sweep up the dirt on the riverbanks. The next year, he persuaded the Leo J. Martin Golf Course to transform its greens and fairways into a sprawling landscape for cross-country skiing alongside the Charles, allowing the public to enjoy recreation on the river even when its waters had frozen. A 15-kilometer system of trails makes use of natural snowfall and offers skiers a chance to change up their routes. Even when flakes refuse to fall, a state-of-the-art artificial-snow system shoots powder over a 2.5-kilometer loop, which rests beneath lights to allow night skiing before guests return to the cozy snack shop for hot cocoa and a bite to eat.

All Tuned Up prepares skis and snowboards for the slopes with custom grinding and waxing treatments. First, an experienced technician inspects the equipment, checking for any minor damage or pine branches stuck to the tip and determining the ideal adjustments. Next, a professional-grade stone-grinding machine flattens the base and engraves one of more than 15 preprogrammed patterns. Designed to help the ski or board glide easier based on current snow conditions, markings range from coarse grinds for navigating wet, heavy courses to a Cosby-sweater motif for boogie dancing through the slalom gates. A ceramic disk completes the base-beveling process, adjusting angles and edges so they carve through surfaces more easily and react to turns promptly and safely. Lastly, All Tuned Up's technicians apply PFC-free Purl wax stolen from a mountain beehive and melt it into place with infrared light. Depending on the amount of service required, tune-ups are usually ready for pickup within 24–48 hours.
