At this year’s Club Expo held in the Sol Ballroom on March 5, the SaddleBrooke Tennis Association (SBRTA) introduced Pop Tennis, and were inundated with interested parties signing up to play this new format.
Pop Tennis (formerly known as paddle tennis) is played on a shorter tennis court where there are no doubles lanes. It is played with a solid paddle and depressurized tennis balls. The same court is used for singles and doubles, with doubles being the dominant form of play. The serves are underhand and the smaller court emphasizes net play and creates a faster game.
SBRTA will provide further information about Pop Tennis play in the Ranch Reminder over the next few weeks, together with regular instruction on Monday morning tennis clinics, which have proven so popular.
