Enjoy this reorganized and mobile-friendly version of the original SBR Pickleball Club website. The Official website is accessed by clicking the title link above.

All sites on the SBR Clubs website are now mobile-friendly.

"Mobile-Friendly" referes to a website that renders on all screen sizes from small mobile devices to desktop computers such that the user doesn't have to zoom and pan to easily access and easily read content. Users get the best experience when the presentation of the webpage includes all content regardless of the screen size, and the elements, organization, and navigation system are the same (as is the case for all mobile-friendly club sites on this Clubs website) When this is true, the user who learns the website on one device knows it on all devices.

You can make direct contact with the Official Membership Chairperson by clicking Contact here or the "Contact" menu item at the top of the page.

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!

New to Pickleball?

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.

Pickleball Courts Construction Video

With Tim Fudge's understanding and special permission to enter the restricted space, I met with the builder of our new courts, Dave Marburger, in September 2015. Over four days I recorded both his construction activities and him — as I discovered him to be a genuine one-of-a kind master of his trade and unique personality willing to share personal information.

Using three cameras plus a sound recording instrument, I collected about 22 hours of footage that I heavily edited down to about 11 minutes. You will see I eschewed presenting a documentary style video favoring a snappy high-energy piece for an entertaining and informative video of interest to residents.


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 Pickleball" -- provides a sample video so that visitors can see Mark's unique teaching style and the quality of the recordings.
