Welcome to the SaddleBrooke Pickleball Association Website

 

The SaddleBrooke Pickleball Association (SPA) is the largest sport activity in SaddleBrooke. Our 600 plus members enjoy fabulous camaraderie and exercise by being part of the fastest growing sport for senior adults in America!

 

The six courts at our Ridgeview facility were built entirely with club member donations and are state-of-the-art. Guests are invited to play as long as they complete and submit a SPA Release of Liability form to the SPA board. Proper court shoes and regulation Pickleball equipment must be used by all players at the RidgeView courts.

 

Our members are rated as recreational (beginners), 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0 plus level players, consistent with the USAPA guidelines.

Welcome New Members


New to Pickleball?   Want to improve your game?

SPA offers support ALL levels for SPA members.

Pickleball players always want to improve their skills. And our SaddleBrooke Pickleball Association (SPA) members are no exception. We are fortunate that a team of volunteers within our organization willingly take time to help fellow players improve their skills and teach lessons at all levels. This is a rarity among pickleball clubs. We take individuals interested in learning this fabulous sport from an introductory lesson through mid-level skill lessons.  Each year, we try to bring in higher level skilled and nationally known players to conduct pickleball clinics and work with select individuals.

If you already hold a rating from USAPA or a formal rating (not self-rated)
from another club, please provide supporting documentation
