Professional tennis players now sparring on Centre Court at Wimbledon have likely scrutinized every part of their game – from stance, to serving strength to baseline maneuvers — with a team of coaches at the ready. But what of the average tennis fan hitting the court a few weeks per month? PlaySight Interactive Ltd. is a pioneer in the emerging market of affordable, consumer sports analytics systems. PlaySightTM Smart Court is a real-time and after action review system. The technology is affordable, easy to set up and use and it is designed for tennis clubs across the world. Our vision was to bring affordable advanced and modern “After Action Review” (AAR) technology to the club level, feasible until recently for high-profile events only. We aim to globally revolutionize not only the coaching process in all ball sports, starting with tennis, but also to enhance the game experience making it more challenging and fun.
