Frequently Asked Questions

From who your training partners will be to what a typical day looks like, we’ve answered your most common questions about our Hopman Academy.

How do I know that I will be placed in a group appropriate to my skill level?
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. Adjustments will be made if necessary to find the best fit.

Can I change my tennis schedule once I arrive?
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. Please call the Hopman Tennis Office at (813) 907-4200 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST for any changes/requests (after business hours, please email hopman@saddlebrook.com).

What happens if it rains?
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 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 (not accommodations) on your next visit. In case of bad weather, contact the Hopman Office at (813) 907-4200. If clinics are canceled due to weather, we do not provide refunds or prorated billing.

Can I get a private lesson?
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.

What options are there for my children?
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. Kids Club is another fun option for children between ages four and twelve. We recommend advance scheduling of these activities.
