Tennis has long been a staple at Champions For Life. Our tennis center has three indoor tennis courts for recreational, league, and tournament play. All three courts are separated by netting, and all offer wide open spaces beyond the boundaries for unrestricted free movement.
After a very successful fundraising project, the new lights at Champions for Life Sports Center have been installed! They look great, and the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive. Someone did say they thought they were too bright, but that's a complaint we can handle! In fact, Melissa, Jordan, and Sherri can lower the light, or make it brighter, to fit the needs of the folks who are playing, so please feel free to ask if you want them a little dimmer, or a little brighter.
* All tennis players must leave their membership card at the front desk BEFORE playing *
Registration for the 2017-2018 season will begin on September 1, 2017. You will be able to reserve one court for yourself, on a first-come, first-served basis. You do not need to have your entire team or group's registration forms with you, but please talk to each other so we don't have five members of the same group trying to reserve the same time slot. Melissa and/or Jordan will contact everyone before the start of the season to confirm court times, but if you have questions prior to then, please don't hesitate to ask! The registration form is available at the front desk, or by clicking below. It will not be accepted before September 1, so please keep that in mind!
MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS (September 18, 2017 - May 19, 2018)
*New this year, all members will receive a membership package when you sign up. Those of you who preregistered for the season in April and May will receive your package when the season begins. Depending on your level, you could be getting lessons, gift passes, or other fun bonuses! Each packet will also include the CFL Tennis Club guidelines and frequently asked questions. You will also receive your tennis membership cards, which must be presented every time you come to the club. Gold Members will also receive their fitness fobs, for entry into the fitness center.
**For all our membership packages, a single is a single adult over the age of 18. A couple is two adults over the age of 18 who live together at the same address. A family is one or two adults over the age of 18, along with their children under the age of 25, all of whom live together at the same address.

Snowbird (available only as an unlimited membership - no court fees)
Snowbirds memberships are returning these year (on a trial basis)! After many requests, we will try offering Snowbirds this year. Snowbirds may purchase a single or a couple membership; each person must be 65 years old, or older, and the membership is only available as an unlimited membership. The Snowbird Season runs for fifteen weeks, from September 18 through December 31. If you return from your travels before the end of the season here at the Sports Center, you will be able to purchase a reduced rate membership for the rest of the season at a prorated price, which will be determined at a later date.
High School teams who want to use CFL courts for practice will need to speak with Jordan Sadowitz. Currently, the price per court is $60 for 90 minutes of court time, and courts need to be booked in advance. Jordan can be reached at 315-727-6721. If the coach would prefer to purchase play passes for each of their players, which would permit the players to play as often as they'd like during their month of membership, please speak to Jordan for prices as well. In that case, each player will need to fill out a registration form, available from Jordan or from the front desk.
Coaches need to provide a certificate of insurance naming CFL as an additional insured, and each player needs to sign in when they arrive to play. Players with play passes do not need to sign in, but would need to bring their card to the desk every time they come in to play.
Guest fee is $10 + court time fee.
Maximum visits as a guest: 3
*Guests must sign in at the front desk and pay their fee in advance. You will be asked to fill out an index card with your contact information and sign our waiver. On the back of that card, we'll track your visits. After three visits as a guest, you'll be asked to join as a member.
Lessons & Clinics
Lessons and clinics are available! Please stop by the front desk, or call with any questions or to schedule lessons.
RESERVED COURT TIMES
Court Time is reserved on a first come-first serve basis. Permanent for the season time slots are available from 7:30 am to 7:30 pm, Monday through Friday and 8:00 am through 3:30 pm on Saturday. No permanent court times are available on Sundays, but you are encouraged to call and reserve 24 hours in advance if you'd like to play on Sunday. Court times are available beginning at 12:00 pm and 1:30 pm on Sundays. Later or earlier hours may be available, please check at the desk.
Occasionally throughout the season, we may hold a special event during reserved court times, especially on Saturdays or Sundays. We try to limit this as much as possible, but we want our members to be aware of the possibility. You will have advance notice of these events, and we hope that you will join us for them.
Similarly, all building closures will be announced well in advance. We encourage you to check back here for updates both for planned closures, and emergency closures. Emergency closures will be announced first on our Facebook page (click here to view), and then here on this website. You can also check local news stations for emergency closures.
If your reserved court time is not used three times without proper cancellation notice, you will forfeit the time slot.
Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to court time whenever possible.
$40 per 1.5 hours of court time:
