Discounted court time over holidays!

Get out of the house and work on that backhand cross court winner.  Whether you are traveling to Champaign-Urbana for holidays or want to get out the house to help keep those holiday pounds off your midsection, both twin city indoor tennis facilities are offering sweet discounts for court time.

With the students out of town and campus in standby mode, tennis players can practice or play for just $15 per hour at the Atkins Tennis Center, home of the Fighting Illini Tennis program. The reduced rate from the regular $21 per hour rate is available for time reserved between 1:30 and 5:30pm now until January 8, 2016. Atkins, located on the south side of University of Illinois campus at 1410 W. St Mary's Rd. in Urbana, will be open during the day on both Christmas and New Year's Eve.

The Champaign Park District's tennis facility is also offering a discounted fee for indoor court time. Now until December 31, court time will be just $12 per hour. The reduced price, normally between $17 and $23 depending on time, is applicable during all hours of operation and not restricted to a block of time. Like Atkins, the Dodds Tennis Center, located at 2802 Farber Drive in Champaign, will be open on both Christmas and New Year's Eve. The courts will close at 3pm.
