Ace Our Junior Tennis Camp in Tampa, Florida

Hundreds of talented players come to Saddlebrook’s tennis camp in Florida each year and vastly improve their game through excellent training, hard work, discipline and motivation. Juniors train up to five hours daily in our award-winning tennis facility, in addition to making new friends and enjoying fun social activities with other campers.

Our Tampa tennis program includes on- and off-court performance routines, including specialized drills for consistency and accuracy, and supervised match-play under the supervision of our professional coaching staff. After years of experience and proven success with professional players, our junior program has been designed to improve each camper’s technical, tactical, and mental games. When possible, we facilitate participation in optional local United States Tennis Association (USTA) sanctioned tournaments, which involve additional expenses. Junior campers are welcome year-round with peak seasons during school breaks, holidays and summer months.
