How to Get There
Spent two days at Saddlebrook for a retreat. My suit was spacious, and really nice. The grounds are beautiful. Facilities are really nice. Food was very good and the service was excellent. It is just a great place to stay.
I spent 3 days in July and 3 days in August at Saddlebrook in the adult program (didn't stay at the resort, just came in for tennis). What a great experience! I loved the entire experience. As summer is not the busiest time, there were only 1-3 players per group, and most times I was paired with one or two 3.0 players. Will was one of my favorite instructors, as was Zach. The instructors maintain a nice mix of drills, focusing on the areas of your game that you want to improve, but also adding things that they think you should be working on, and competitive play as well. The instruction felt very personalized to each of the players. While the instructors rotated day by day, I found that I wanted to preferred to keep the same instructor each day. Spoke with Howard Moore (the director) and voila - he made sure I had the same instructor each of the 3 days I was there.
Note that summer is their slow season, because it's very hot and humid (90s into the 100s). I preferred that as there was more time for personalized instructions since the groups were smaller.
Overall, a great experience and I will definitely be returning next summer!
Great service. Cool suites that had 2 double rooms connected to a living area. These proved less expensive than single rooms. Suites comfortably slept 3-4 people. I took 7 staff. Great location. Cool pool areas.
Greetings to all the tennis aficionados out there. I am a hardcore tennis player and recurring customer to the Saddlebrook Resort. I just recently did a 3-day tennis excursion over the Labor Day weekend holiday and I wanted to take a moment to provide a quick review about the facility and my experience.
I have to give a solid 5 stars to the director of the tennis program at Saddlebrook (Mr. Howard Moore) and his tennis staff. The resort is wonderful and tennis is absolutely FANTASTIC! You will find a diverse team of teaching pros and instructors, who are equipped to work on every aspect of your game! There are two sessions (morning and afternoon). I typically do both sessions, but some players opt to do just one session of their choice. I admire how the staff takes special measures to break players up by appropriate levels. So, if you are a solid 4.5 player (like myself), you will most likely be placed with players of that same/similar caliber. It is very common to see some shuffling of players (especially during the beginning of the drills) to maintain a level of consistency and integrity amongst the players. Typically, each group has a maximum total of four players to one instructor (often times less). This allows for more hitting time and personal instruction with the teaching pro. During my last visit, there were a total of 4 of us in a group (me and 3 other 4.5 players) for the morning/afternoon sessions. The second day, there were a total of 3 of us in a group (me and 2 other 4.5 players) during the morning/afternoon sessions). On my last day, it just so happened that there were no other 4.5 players enrolled in the morning session, so I had the opportunity to do 1-on-1 instructions and drills with the teaching pro and it was FANTASTIC!
I warn the weak and weary… The Florida heat can be a “Scorching Sizzzzzzler”! I am truly a “warm-bodied” player, whereby the heat and humidity does not bother me, but for some, it may be a bit unbearable. There is always plenty of water, Gatorade, and fruit on standby for one to replenish. If your fitness is questionable, don’t feel ashamed if you find yourself taking several breaks throughout the sessions—You will hit thousands of balls, exercise every muscle in your body, and exert ergs of energy during each drill session, so recovery time is expected. As a former track runner and multi-sport player, I pride myself to be in rather fit shape, and possess lots of endurance! By the end of day, you will definitely be fatigued and feel you got your money’s worth.
By design, I have found the Saddlebrook drill sessions to be rigorous and quite challenging! You start off with the basic strokes: forehands & backhands (down the line/cross court), volleys, overheads, slices, and serves. During the session it is common for the on-court instructor and/or “floating staff” to critique and help polish your technique. There is a lot of point play and varying drills to work on court depth, strategy, and precision. Come ready to ask questions and let the instructor know what area(s) of your game need(s) honing or that you would like to work on.
I have to say, that the teaching pros are phenomenal! Each visit, I get the opportunity to meet and work with new ones, as well as old ones. What I’ve found is that each pro at Saddlebrook has his/her own unique teaching style, personality, and specialty; some pros employ “drill sergeant” tactics to get the best out of the players, some exhibit noticeable exuberating energy on the court, some are goofy and use on-court comedy, some instructors press the mental and use the psychological approach. No matter which style, the common thread is that they are all highly-skilled, well trained, and give valuable on-court instructions!
I have stayed at the resort numerous of times and I have found the accommodations to be quite suitable for my needs. It appears they have upgraded many of the living quarters since my last visit a few months ago. This past visit, I stayed in one of the fully furnished suites, which mimics a mini-apartment, with everything one would need—Full kitchen (fridge, microwave, stove, dishwasher, flatware, utensils), patio deck, TVs in every room (including the Tennis Channel) ;-) The accommodations have always been comfortable and clean during my stay.
So, for those who are avid tennis players and want to work on certain aspects of their game… or if you are a novice and new to the game of tennis… or simply want to engage in some recreational fun with a sport that is befitting for all ages. I highly recommend the Saddlebrook Resort and tennis program as a place of choice!
5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ and 3 thumbs up! 👍👍👍
Every, every review says the same thing. Tennis was ok. Howard(a USTA teaching pro ?!?!?!??!!?) "jumped" on the court without introducing himself and started blasting net shots at my wife. Three minutes later I told him to knock it down a few notches so that she can enjoy the "experience" Said, "I don't care who you are, but you need to tone it down as he's screaming at the top of his lungs! Will, our pro next day, much, much better. Where was the 9:30am fruit that was advertised? FYI...Don't ask the guests if they want it, Have someone bring the $3.00 worth of fruit to the courts. Again, dont ask your guests, JUST DO IT! LoL
As for the valet, SAME, SAME problem as everyone else. Saddlebrook either does not have the right amt of staff for the valet, or MANAGEMENT does not know what there doing(my guess is mgt). Waiting for someone in a golf cart to pick me up at 6:30am, 2days in a row over 20 minutes SHOULD NOT HAPPEN. And from 1st call at 630am till I got my vehicle at 7:10am is just not acceptable.
Again, not to sound like all the rest of the reviews, the room was beyond outdated. The stained carpet was 2 years beyond being replaced, wallpaper coming off in bathroom. I know, if you respond to this review, your going to talk about renovations. That's been happening for years. To sum up, the facility did adjust my bill, tennis was good, salmon lunch salad was very good. My "resort" room...musty, outdated, old, bad carpet, etc. And valet was a joke. Sad, sad thing was I live in a very large tennis community in southern, FL, and Saddlebrook lost out on "word of mouth".... I could never give a good recommendation to my tennis friends. And, there are well over 500 members in my tennis/gated community here in PB county.
Looks like my wife and I will be looking at the new USTA Orlando facility for our next tennis vacation.
