Our team-building events and games bring character and charisma to your wedding celebration or event with those who matter most. Laugh together as you craft a boat from the barest of materials, then race it in our Superpool. Enjoy friendly competition during a tennis or golf tournament. Learn to cook a new dish together in an interactive culinary class with our top chefs. These are the defining moments that will put that extra special touch on your wedding or event gathering … and they’re what set Saddlebrook Resort apart when it comes to Tampa venues.

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 speak to your guests’ interests and personalities. 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 knows how to wake up your guests’ inner imagination and playfulness.

Build-a-Boat Regatta

Our interactive, fun Build-a-Boat & Hope-It-Floats Regatta will inspire laughter and connection 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

Have golfers in the group? Play on two Arnold Palmer signature courses or get 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.

Tennis Tournaments

Any tennis players at your wedding or event? The team at the Harry Hopman Academy offers a variety of events and programs designed to bring guests together and elevate their 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.
