Meet for Success at Saddlebrook

Outside of the office, your team can connect like never before, especially when enjoying the limitless outdoor and athletic pursuits one of the prettiest event spaces Tampa has to offer. Here at Saddlebrook, we make the moments out of the boardroom just as successful as those within, with team-building activities with the innovative Dr. Nick Hall, interactive cooking experiences, built-a-boat regattas, build-a-car races, “unofficial” Olympics, group golf and tennis tournaments, multi-sports events and more. Your team will come away invigorated and motivated.

Team Building with Dr. Nick Hall

Improve skills and build relationships throughout our engaging team-building opportunities led by Saddlebrook’s staff professional, Dr. Nick Hall. He will work with you to design activities that parallel your meeting theme while staying within your preferred budget and format. Dr. Hall is a widely published, award-winning medical professional and speaker who has wrestled alligators, milked rattlesnakes and worked as an intelligence-operative for the US government. Through his personal experience and groundbreaking studies, he will lead seminars and design team activities to help your group handle stress, improve their help and achieve their goals.

Build-a-Boat Regatta

Our interactive, fun Build-a-Boat & Hope-It-Floats Regatta will inspire team building and laughter in a dynamic setting. Craft a “floating device” entirely of cardboard and duct tape (extra points if it actually resembles a boat!), then head off to the Superpool to test your innovation in a fun-filled regatta (prizes optional).

Group Golf & Tournaments

It’s easy for your event to include great golf, thanks to our two Arnold Palmer signature courses,  as well as professional instruction from The Saddlebrook Golf Academy. Whether your group consists of 20 players or 200, our professional golf staff can coordinate fun and memorable tournaments, clinics and video analysis at the Training Center & Range, and customized programs, depending on your group’s level of play or interest in the game.


Tennis Tournaments

The team at the Harry Hopman Academy offers a variety of events and programs designed to improve your meeting experience, build team spirit and elevate your tennis game. If your group is not interested in working with a tennis professional, we can also arrange tournaments, Round Robins and other outings on one of our 45 tennis courts, including all four Grand Slam surfaces.
