Welcome to the SaddleBrooke Ranch Tennis Association

Quick Start


The SaddleBrooke Ranch Tennis Association (SBRTA) was founded in late 2011. The purpose of SBR Tennis is to stimulate and maintain interest in tennis at SaddleBrooke Ranch; to promote good fellowship and sportsmanship among the members; and to enhance the social and recreational lives of SaddleBrooke Ranch property owners and their guests. All levels of skill are accommodated. Additional activities are planned to enhance the tennis experience at SBR. These activities include exhibition tennis, clinics, group or private lessons, mixed doubles, round robin tournaments and socials.
