College Recruitment & Scholarships

Players that come to Saddlebrook have dreams and goals that range from winning a Grand Slam to receiving a Division I college scholarship. It is our job to provide student-athletes with an opportunity and environment conducive to achieving those goals.

The recruitment process and qualifications for tennis are unlike other sports such as football and basketball where players are judged almost solely on athletic ability and achievement. Coaches are looking for academic excellence as well as athletic performance. SAT scores can be just as important as a USTA ranking to many coaches when making their final decisions.

Coaches from top Division I schools utilize Saddlebrook as a resource in their recruitment efforts. Coaches are attracted to academy players because they know that these players have made an extreme commitment to both their tennis and to their education. Each year Saddlebrook students are recruited to some of the finest academic and athletic institutions in the country on both athletic and academic scholarships.
