Welcome to the SBR Tennis Association

Quick Start

Overview

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.

Operation

Scheduling Tennis Courts

All tennis players can reserve a court in advance by contacting the SBR Fitness Center (520-818-6018). SBRTA members may reserve courts up to 2 weeks in advance.

Organized play takes precedence over casual play. All casual play is limited to 2 hours.

Unreserved courts may be used by walk-on players after checking in at the SBR Fitness Center for court assignment.

Guests Can Play Too
