In brief: Next day

In most cases people can return to normal daily function the day following a cool sculpting treatment.
Keep in mind of course that individual treatment results will vary and you should plan to return to normal activities once feeling yourself again.

In brief: No down time

Part of the appeal of CoolSculpting is that there is no downtime.
For a day or two after the procedure you may have some mild pain, but for most patients it is well treated with motrin. You could easily return to tennis in a day or two. For more on CoolSculpting see: http://www.omahacosmeticsurgery.com/non-surgical-procedures/coolsculpting/
