The SVB Academies Facility


Originally created through a private/public partnership between the City of Zephyrhills and Pascal Collard, the SVB Tennis and Wellness Center is truly a unique addition to the Tampa Bay Area. Likewise, the Academies is the best high-performance tennis, golf, and beach-volley academy in the area.  Nestled approximately 45-minutes from the magnificent Tampa International Airport, the location is ideal.


The 7,400-square-foot Wellness facility is named after Sarah Vande Berg, daughter of Todd Vande Berg, Zephyrhills Development Director. Sarah was a young tennis star who tragically died in a car crash in South Carolina in 2015 at the age of 21. Sarah’s passion for tennis and helping others inspired the center, the academy, and the Sarah Vande Berg Tennis Foundation which will give children a chance to play, regardless of their financial situation. 

Simply, SVB Academies is the best choice for the whole athlete!

The academy offers ultra-modern living quarters for students (and visiting family) from all over the world. The healthy-living style details of the dormitory are second to none. Extreme thought and care were placed into every detail of the building’s construction.

"The decision to choose SVB over other academies came after evaluating coaches during our tryout period. They are held to high standards, and they are transmitting and instilling those to players (and parents). Each athlete is treated individually, in order to allow them to blossom into the player and young adult they work so hard to become.

The approach reflects a slight “European academy flair” and it makes it completely different than any other academy in USA."
