January 17, 2024

Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) and Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR), serving more than 20,000 memberships, is relocating its headquarters from Hilton Head Island, S.C., to Saddlebrook Resort in Wesley Chapel, Fla. This strategic move represents a significant milestone in both organization’s growth and commitment to providing unparalleled service to those they serve, the PTR/PPR says.

The new PTR/PPR offices, located within the upscale Saddlebrook Resort, will serve as the central hub for operations, events, education and programs. This partnership is a result of continuous efforts to enhance its capabilities, foster innovation, and accommodate membership growth.

Saddlebrook Resort, renowned for its luxurious amenities and world-class tennis facilities, with a rich history of tennis tradition, offers an ideal setting for PTR/PPR to thrive. The move aligns with the company’s vision to provide an elevated experience for both employees, members, and partners, fostering collaboration, creativity and productivity.

PTR’s Board Chair, Lynne Rolley, expressed enthusiasm about the relocation, stating, “This move signifies a pivotal moment for our organizations. The new office at Saddlebrook Resort is not just a location change; it’s a strategic decision to position ourselves for sustained growth and excellence. We believe this move will empower our team and strengthen our commitment to delivering exceptional service for our membership.”

Saddlebrook International Sports Vice President Patrick Farrell added, “Saddlebrook continues to be the premier destination tennis resort in the US, partnering with PTR complements both entities at an amazing level. The opportunities are endless and we look forward to being a part of shaping the future of the tennis and pickle communities alike. “
