About the Chobani Tennis Classic

New Tennis Classic Logo-WEB.jpgThe Chobani Tennis Classic, founded in 2010, was created as a sister event to The Otesaga Hotel Seniors Open and Pro-Am, both of which take place in scenic Cooperstown, New York, the Tuesday after Labor Day. The Tennis Classic is sponsored by the Chobani, America's largest yogurt maker, and hosted by the Cooperstown Country Club, which overlooks beautiful Otsego Lake. This is an outstanding athletic and social event, as well as an excellent networking opportunity, with players from throughout the country.

TennisClass1.jpgThis year’s events will take place on Tuesday, September 4, 2018 (rain date, Sunday, September 9th).  The Tennis Classic features a scramble round-robin format for up to 32 players in two flights. Players will enjoy watching tournament play while enjoying the hospitality of the Country Club; participants and sponsors are invited to attend a reception and Awards Banquet at The Otesaga Hotel later that evening. The Tennis Classic has raised more than $120,000 in support of the Pathfinder Village Foundation’s Scholarship Endowment, which assists Village residents and Otsego Academy students with tuition charges, and allows them to continue their paths of growth and independence at Pathfinder's world-renowned campus.

Each year, the Tennis Classic attracts participants from far-and-wide and is considered the region’s preeminent charitable tennis tournament. With the Chobani as the Title Sponsor, and with the involvement of many community-minded businesses and donors, the tournament is organized by a volunteer committee chaired by Bob and Patricia Hanft of Cooperstown, NY.
