Tournaments

Saddlebrook has a full tournament schedule of local USTA, ITF, and Florida regional USTA tournaments. Our players are strongly encouraged to compete as often as possible to improve their rankings and their ability to compete under pressure. The academy provides transportation and supervision for those tournaments listed on our schedule.

Special arrangements can be made for those students wishing to travel to additional tournaments including ITF and other regional USTA tournaments. Students must receive approval from both their coach at Saddlebrook and the school in order to attend tournaments in addition to the Saddlebrook schedule. All arrangements for travel, accommodations, supervision etc. must be handled by the student and/or their parent or guardian.

We encourage all students to become part of the USTA as they will not be eligible to play in any tournaments we attend without a membership. Our tournament coordinator is able to assist with membership and entry to tournaments but it is helpful if students arrive to school with a valid USTA membership and member number.
