ABOUT US

The Boston Madison Square Garden Club was established in 1928 as a private sport and social Club serving the members of the Boston community. As a long-standing tenant of the original Boston Garden, the “Garden Club” was built on a foundation of tradition, respect, and a true love of Boston sports that still continues today.

Now located inside the TD Garden, the Garden Club provides members with a wide range of benefits and services to cater to their passion for sports and entertainment. Members are able to utilize the club to enhance professional and personal relationships, while enjoying some of the greatest moments in sports and entertainment history!

MEET THE TEAM

MALORIE DAVINO
General Manager

Malorie joined the Garden Club management team in 2008, just after graduating from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. Throughout college, Malorie spent her summers on Cape Cod gaining experience in the hospitality industry at the Falmouth Yacht Club, where she began as the Club’s hostess, and quickly molded into the role of the dining room’s Assistant Manager.

TIM FERULLO
Director of Admissions and Memberships

Tim joined the Garden Club team as our Director of Admissions and Memberships in August of 2016. In this role, Tim will not only focus on recruiting active new members and facilitating the admissions process, but will also work closely with the Management Team contributing ideas to enhance the overall membership experience.

Prior to the Garden Club, Tim attended Assumption College where he minored in Marketing and received a B.S. in Organizational Communication. From there, he spent three years at the Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau, working initially as their Sales, Marketing and Convention Services Assistant, and receiving a promotion shortly after as their Short Term Meetings Manager with his own territory. Tim’s experience with client services, as well as his active involvement in local industry events to promote the GBCVB will be beneficial in his new role.

As an avid sports fan with an impressive knowledge of the industry, Tim is very much looking forward to building relationships with current and new members.

HISTORY

Tex Rickard, a well-known boxing promoter and architect, designed and developed the original Boston Garden. Rickard’s blue prints were modeled after another facility in which he built and operated; Madison Square Garden in New York City. Originally called the “Boston Madison Square Garden”, Rickard’s Boston facility would eventually be condensed to “Boston Garden”.

Rickard designed the arena specifically for boxing; envisioning seats close enough for fans to see every expression of the fighters. Once hockey and basketball came onto the scene, the closeness created an intimate and personal atmosphere that became the charm of the “Old Boston Garden”.

The 1928 construction of the Boston Madison Square Garden led to the official launch of the “Boston Madison Square Garden Club”. Rickard’s dream was to develop six additional “Gardens” throughout the United States, each having their own private Club like ours. Tex passed away shortly after the Boston Garden opened in November 1928, and unfortunately his dream never came to fruition.

The original Boston Garden was demolished in 1997, yet the Garden Club managed to survive its transition to the FleetCenter, which would be renamed to what is now the TD Garden. Since it was founded, the Garden Club continues to maintain a reputable standing in the Boston Community and remains one of the oldest sports clubs in the city.
