When will Columbia Athletic Club close and for how long?

The club will close on Monday, April 30 and will be closed for approximately six months. We plan to reopen in late fall 2018.

Why is Columbia Athletic Club closing for so long?

The scope of work for the renovations are extensive and include a complete overhaul and expansion of the locker rooms; a new front entrance; roof and HVAC replacements; and other upgrades, including structural work.

Why can’t part of the club remain open while the work is being done?

Due to the scope of the project, life safety systems for the main part of the facility will be shut down during the entire renovation.

What should I do if I am an Athletic Club 1Fit member?

All Columbia Athletic Club 1Fit members will have access to Supreme Sports Club and Columbia Gym during the entire renovation. If you have further inquiries regarding membership, please email  

Will the tennis courts be closed during the entire renovation?

The indoor tennis courts will reopen in mid-August to accommodate block time players. These players have pre-paid for the year/season for a specific day and time block to be reserved every week, from mid-Aug through April/May. Temporary trailers will be used for restrooms and check-in on the far end of the building, closest to Harper’s Choice Middle School. There will be no access through the club until it is officially reopened.

In six short weeks, Columbia Athletic Club is already showing true signs of progress toward our new look.  While most of the work so far has been demolition of aged infrastructure, the foundation for the expansion has been poured and the updated locker rooms are emerging from the rubble. Check out our progress below!
