Welcome to the Saddlebrooke Ranch Pickleball Association (SBRPA). We are eager to share our love for the game of pickleball with you. The majority of our members have less than one year of experience playing pickleball, and beginners are regularly being welcomed into the group.
Members of our association play both recreational and competitive pickleball. Some members have chosen to compete in local pickleball tournaments. However, competitive play is not a requirement! We enjoy the competitive aspects of the game, but we always play to have fun!

If you have never played pickleball before, come on out and try it. We can loan you a paddle. Check out the Courts Calendar below for days and times for "Beginners" sessions during which there will be a coach on hand to teach you the basics.

Friedenberg Instructional Videos
In 2013, Mark Friedenberg was invited to present a clinic to the overall SaddleBrooke Ranch Pickleball Club. The event was recorded from start to finish, then edited to a set of 20 "chapter" videos. Edits included annotation, slow-motion, and freeze-frame.
The result was well received! Mark secured exclusive rights to display the videos for the purpose of offering a new website for those vidoes plus more videos to follow.
His website -- "Winning Pickleba" -- provides a sample video so that visitors can see Mark's unique teaching style and the quality of the recordings.
