Tennis Classic

New Tennis Classic Logo-2019 WEB - 250.pngCelebrating 10 years!

The Chobani Tennis Classic, founded in 2010, was created as a sister event to the Pathfinder Village-Baseball Hall of Fame Golf Invitational, both of which take place in scenic Cooperstown, New York, the Tuesday after Labor Day. The 10th annual Tennis Classic is sponsored by the Chobani, America's largest yogurt maker, and is 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.

The 10th annual 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 Cooperstown Country Club; players and sponsors are invited to attend a reception and banquet at The Otesaga Hotel that evening.

The Chobani Tennis Classic has raised more than $140,000 in support of the Pathfinder Village Foundation’s Scholarship Endowment, which assists Village residents and campers, and Otsego Academy students with tuition charges and fees, 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.
