Tennis enthusiasts of all ability levels flock to Saddlebrook's Tampa tennis camps for adults to experience our intense and demanding program. Available 365 days a year, our daily clinics and professional analysis includes a series of imaginative drills designed by the legendary Harry Hopman and taught by our 25 pros, including Howard Moore, Alvaro Betancur, Scott Brooks, and others.

During your time at our Tampa tennis training center, you will get stronger, play longer and learn how to react instinctively to the ball.

Frequently Asked Questions About Saddlebrook Tennis

Q: How do I know that I will be placed in a group appropriate with my skill level?

A: All participants are asked their ability level upon making a reservation. We ask for information such as a NTRP (3.5, 4.0 etc. if applicable), playing history and/or years of private instruction in order to try and match guests with players of a similar ability level. Once you arrive and are placed on court with an instructor (4:1 Player - Instructor Ratio) our Adult Program Coordinator checks in with each court to make sure that the ability levels are matched as closely as possible. At this time adjustments will be made if necessary to find the best fit for each guest. If you have questions or concerns about your court assignment please make sure to talk to the Coordinator so that we can ensure your tennis experience is a memorable one.

Q: When are clinics offered and do I have to start on a certain day of the week?

A: Our clinics are offered 365 days a year. They start each day at 8am and run until 3pm with a break for lunch. Guests have the option to play as many days as they like starting any day of the week.

Q: Can I change my tennis schedule once I arrive?

A: We strongly encourage guests to plan their tennis schedule in advance of arrival. Tennis room rates are only available to those guests who have at least one participant in the tennis program each day. We may not be able to accommodate additional player requests upon arrival due to our need to coordinate the program in advance. While we try our best to accommodate all guests, there are times especially during peak seasons when it is not possible.

Q: What should I pack for tennis?

A: Proper tennis attire and footwear are required. Make sure to bring a comfortable broken-in pair of tennis shoes, as well as sunscreen and a hat or visor. There is a drinking fountain on each court with water and Gatorade delivered once each session. We strongly suggest that you bring a personal water bottle to ensure that you stay hydrated. We also recommend more than one racquet in case you break a string. Stringing services are available in our Pro Shop as well as a full line of Wilson racquets that are available to demo.

Q: What happens if it rains?

A: Occasionally we will have a rain shower that will interrupt a session. The majority of the time we are able to make up any time missed time during the next session. A thunder shower can come and go in a matter of 20 minutes so we usually take a short break and get back out on the court. If more than half a day is rained out a "Rain Check" will be issued through the tennis office that can be redeemed for additional tennis on your next visit. A "Rain Check" can be redeemed for tennis only and cannot be used towards accommodations or at any of the other Saddlebrook outlets.

Q: What is there to do after tennis?

A: There are many tennis-related activities available during your stay such as the players' 'Meet and Greet', serving contest, singles matching, round robin, and 'Beat the Pro'. Please make sure to talk to the Adult Program Coordinator upon your arrival about any activities you might be interested in participating in. In addition, we invite you to take advantage of our European-style Spa, swimming pools, Sports Village and world-class golf courses.

Q: Can I get a private lesson?

A: Private lessons are scheduled either during lunch or after the afternoon session. Arrangements for lessons can be made through the Tennis Office. If you would like to request a specific pro we will do our best to accommodate you.

Q: What options are there for my children?

A: Saddlebrook is a great place for family vacations. If the kids play tennis you can enroll them in our junior camp program where they can play as much or as little as they like. We also have a great golf program that can accommodate players of all ages and skill levels. S'Kids Club is another fun option for children between four and 12. We strongly recommend calling in advance to schedule any of these activities.

Q: Do I need a car?

A: Saddlebrook offers airport pick up/drop off transportation services which must be arranged at least 24 hours in advance through the resort. Should you like to explore the Tampa Bay area we suggest renting a car. The resort has valet parking available for $15 per day.
