A legendary Tampa Bay resort, the award-winning Saddlebrook Resort has made a name for itself as an unforgettable meeting and vacation destination and one of the nation's preeminent training facilities for athletes.

The Tennis Academy was acquired in 1986 by the legendary Harry Hopman. Harry Hopman's philosophy and focus on fitness made Hopman one of the most successful tennis coaches in history and became the foundation of the Saddlebrook Program. The focus is still under the leadership of The Tennis Program Director, Howard Moore, and the intense drills we run during daily clinics.
The Hopman Tennis Program at Saddlebrook offers tennis programs for players of all ages and ability levels. The renowned Tampa tennis facility attracts enthusiasts from across the globe and is home to 43 tennis courts including all four Grand Slam surfaces.
