Club Info/Community Involvement

Club Information:

The Clarksville Athletic Club was established in 1993 with the desire to create and maintain the best recreational, social, and fitness facility in the area; to establish a good reputation; and to become an integral part of the community.

Our five pools, sand volleyball court, racquetball courts, and state-of-the-art equipment make us the best social and recreational facility in Clarksville, but our excellent service truly sets us apart. We offer racquetball and volleyball open play nights every week, daily children’s fitness classes, seasonal swim lessons, free clinics and fitness training, all which make us the ultimate source for fun & fitness.

It is important that we stay at the top of our game offering our members the newest equipment, a knowledgeable fitness staff and unique perks like individual flat-screen televisions on the cardio equipment. Recently, we have opened the largest expansion in CAC history!  This $4.5 million expansion features full court basketball, running track, expanded strength training, and children’s fitness are just a few of the additional amenities!

It is important for us to make regular contributions to the community and maintain a good reputation among Clarksville residents. Promoting health and wellness is our main priority which has been proven by our commitment and participation in local events. For example, we have hosted the racquetball competition for the Clarksville Senior Games, organized a road race which raised money for a local charity, and contribute numerous donations throughout the year to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. We also participate in food drives and make numerous donations to local events and charities.

CAC members has a giving heart yet again!

During the month of December, 2018 CAC hosted a silent auction of items that were donated by businesses , members & employees. This auction raised $1,188.50 that went to the Casey Deer Memorial Scholarship. Casey was the late daughter of Nathan Deer. Nathan wanted this scholarship to help fund students full fill their dreams. With the help of so many, we can help more students. CAC takes great pride in this community.

Clarksville-Montgomery County Green Certification Program

Our latest upcoming project is replacing the lighting fixtures to be more energy-efficient.  If your business would be interested in becoming part of the CMC Green Certification Program, contact Michelle Newell at (931) 217-3332 or visit

4th Annual ” Doggie Day Splash”

Fun In the Sun Day September 10th 2016

doggie-day-pic-sep-10-2016-new dog-pic-2 dog-pic-2016

The days of summer may be almost over, but for all the Rover’s it was a splish splash of a day on September 10th.  Clarksville Athletic Club (CAC) hosted their 4th annual “Doggie Day Splash.” Dogs of all shapes and sizes converged at Clarksville Athletic Club’s outdoor pool for much fun in the sun. All the canines sniffled and snuffled, made new friends and explored new territory. There was much excitement in the air for the pups, but their owners jumped in the pool too to take a dip with their dogs. CAC has been hosting this event for Max’s Hope Pet rescue to raise money for the No kill shelter. Members and guests got a glimpse of how the rescue helps abandoned dogs find loving homes. I ask you…who would not want to be part of this event?

There were 57 dogs that attend the event and  all of them went home with a parting gift…  a doggie bath coupon donated from Pet Food Center.  CAC held a month long silent auction of items that were donated.  Members and their pups attend the event for a minimum $5.00 donation fee. There was a collect total of $1419.73 donated to help the rescue make a difference for our 4-legged friends. “I was humbled to see those who continue to come out for this event, and those who came out for the 1st time to make a difference.” Said Cheryl Berardo, corporate relations director. “This event made those who attended wear a smile on their face for the rest of day (and maybe the weekend), they knew they helped save animals lives that day.”  CAC was filled with the usual sounds of laughter and splashes, but on this day, the air was also punctuated by excited “throw the toy” barks, and was filled with particles of water shaken off into the air by our wet furry friends Berardo said.
