What Makes POP Tennis So Fun?

POP tennis takes all the best parts of tennis and combines them with a court and equipment that make the game a little easier to play. The result is a social sport that’s as laidback or competitive as you want to make it, and the best part is that absolutely anyone can play.

In POP tennis, the court is a little smaller, the ball a little slower, and the racquet a little shorter—the combination of which adds up to a lot of fun while getting some exercise. It’s tennis with a twist!

POP tennis is played in a doubles format, so you don’t have to cover the entire court yourself. Our players range from the late 50s to late 80s, so grab a friend, neighbor, or partner and try the sport everyone is talking about.

Now that you know a little bit about POP tennis, why don’t you come by and see why so many SaddleBrooke residents enjoy the sport?

There will be a POP tennis demonstration at the SaddleBrooke One tennis courts on Sunday, Aug. 20, from 9 to 11 a.m. And if you like what you see, you can take one of the Tennis Club paddles and give it a try.

You don’t need to sign up. Just show up, and maybe you’ll meet some new friends. Hope to see you there!
