Tennis Lessons with a Certified Instructor

We Make Tennis Fun for All Ages at Our Tampa Bay Tennis Resort

At Safety Harbor Resort and Spa, we offer a full Tennis Program on our five Har-Tru tennis courts overlooking the magnificent Tampa Bay. Our customized tennis teaching method allows each player to retain his or her personal style of play, while focusing only on changes that are made based on sound biomechanical technique. Our students learn not only how to strike the ball properly, but the complete how and why that makes these proven techniques work.
