Here at Saddlebrook Resort, we’re known nationwide as a premier destination for both golf and tennis—not to mention fabulous across-the-board luxury hospitality in Greater Tampa. Lately, we’ve begun offering an equally world-class venue for the fastest-growing sport in America: pickleball!
Needless to say, the Tampa Bay area offers great weather year-round for this super-fun game, something of a combination between tennis, ping-pong, and badminton and very much its own animal.
Pickleball at Saddlebrook Resort
Here at Saddlebrook Resort, our Pickleball Village appeals both to top-level players and those who’ve never wielded a pickleball racquet in their lives, but are keen to see what all the fuss is about.
As with the elite training resources and facilities we make available for golfing and tennis on our 480-acre grounds, we give you advanced options for improving your prowess on the pickleball court. After stretching and movement exercises, kick off a day’s session with pro tips and a half-hour clinic, followed by chalk talk and coached Round Robin-style match play. Following lunch, hours of open play are available in the afternoon.
All things considered—the subtropical climate and the luxury accommodations and on-site amenities we provide also very much among them—it’s hard to beat Saddlebrook Resort as a place for pickleball, no matter what your skill level!
