2018 Sponsorship Packages

Come Celebrate With Us and Be a Part of the Story

In 2108 the Levene Gouldin & Thompson Tennis Challenger celebrates a quarter century of bringing pro tennis to Binghamton. You have the opportunity to be a sponsor of the 25th annual event through one of our unique sponsorship packages.

The world’s up and coming tennis players will once again vie for a $75,000 purse in a tournament with a history of attracting extensive news coverage including the Press & Sun-Bulletin, Time Warner Cable, Empire Sports Network, WBNG-TV and Citadel Broadcasting radio. Because this is an ATP Tour event, media across the country carry the results—including USA Today and the New York Times.

The tournament benefits the Discovery Center and other local charities, and the site is centrally located in downtown Binghamton—2 hours from Albany, 3 hours from New York City, 3.5 hours from Buffalo, 2.5 hours from Rochester and 1 hour from Syracuse.
