Burlingamer's Purpose and the People Who Support It

Our Purpose

Burlingamer was founded in 2011 in response to a lack of athletic infrastructure in Burlingame to support the demand for recreational sports. The vision was to develop a facility that would accommodate several athletic activities for kids and adults. Burlingamer's purpose is to support athletes of all backgrounds, host events tailored to its clients' wishes, operate daily so that people can fit play into busy schedules, and maintain a premier facility that embraces high organizational and cleanliness standards.
