Frequently Asked Questions

From who your child will train with to where they’ll stay, we’ve answered your most common questions about our Junior Tennis Program.

How will campers be grouped on court?
Campers are grouped by ability level. During the first few sessions of camp, adjustments will be made in order to match up campers as accurately as possible.

Who will be my child’s roommates?
Saddlebrook Tennis is an international program that attracts juniors from all over the world. Juniors are housed in suites that can accommodate up to six occupants. Campers can plan to meet many new and interesting friends. There is a section on the application for roommate requests, and in most cases, we are able to satisfy requests.

Is there supervision?
Saddlebrook Resort is a secure, gated property with 24-hour security. Resident Assistants (RAs) are on duty around the clock and very young campers may either be placed in the room with an RA or in an adjoining room.

Can a camper receive mail?
Packages and letters will be delivered to the Saddlebrook Front Desk, and campers will be notified. Please provide ample time for delivery to our shipping department and then to a camper. Letters sent regular mail to campers who are at Saddlebrook for only one week may not have sufficient time for delivery.

What happens if a camper breaks the rules?
We take the responsibility of ensuring each camper’s safety very seriously; therefore, our enforcement of rules and regulations is quite strict. Saddlebrook reserves the right to remove campers from camp and send them home without a refund should their actions break the rules, damage property and/or endanger themselves, their peers or our staff. Please make sure both parents and children have read the rules and regulations section of our application thoroughly prior to arrival.
