In the spring of 2016, The Country School held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new outdoor athletic complex, featuring:
The Rothberg Tennis Center
The Rothberg Tennis Center, an incredible new facility that provides unlimited court time on its four, state-of-the-art courts. Coupled with outstanding coaching and our legendary commitment to sportsmanship, the Rothberg Tennis Center will make The Country School tennis program the program for elite middle school tennis players.
Drs. Bonnie and Jonathan Rothberg P ’13, ’15, ’23, ’25 generously donated the funds for this fabulous new facility in honor of their children. The courts, constructed by Connecticut’s finest court contractor, Dalton Track + Tennis, a Madison-founded company, will be among the finest independent school courts in the country.
The Country School is grateful to the Rothberg family for making the tennis center a reality. We also thank the Coletti and Howey families for so generously supporting our tennis facility and growing tennis program.
Salgar and MIzhen Fields, two full-sized, side-by-side, state-of-the-art athletic fields
A baseball and softball diamond
Redding Court, a full-sized outdoor basketball court
Other facilities include:
DeFrancis Gymnasium. Indoor athletic events take place inside DeFrancis Gymnasium. Named for the school's first teacher, Katherine DeFrancis, DeFrancis Gymnasium is a multi-purpose space where we hold basketball games and practices, Physical Education classes, and club and intramural athletic events. The DeFrancis Gymnasium is also equipped with an indoor climbing wall.
Ropes Course. The Country School is fortunate to have its own 12-station ropes course located in the woods flanking our 23-acre campus. Students of all ages engage in team-building challenges on the ropes course throughout the year.
Cross Country Trail. In 2014, coaches, athletes, and parents of Country School runners joined forces to create an on-campus cross country course. The school held its first home cross country meet that year, and athletes of all ages routinely run through our trails in the woods.
