ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- The Tennis Club of Albuquerque has integrated the newest tennis technology into how they instruct their players.
The system is called The Play Sight Smart Court, and the capabilities of this system are endless.
“The 2 main things this really does is it provides the video feedback, which goes a long way, but this also gives us this incredible kind of statistical benchmark,” said Tennis Club Senior Assistant Professional Alex Mansfield. “You can actually kind of quantitatively take a look at your progress, everything from spin on the ball, how much rotation you are putting on it, to net clearance, to your average stroke speed.”
A short description of this system is it is a series of cameras and a kiosk system that turns any court into a smart court. It offers line calling, live streaming, instant video feedback and detailed statistics about every shot.
“You see the weaknesses, where they are making mistakes, so I think it is an amazing one, so for sure I am going to use it more to improve my game”, said professional tennis player Jovana Jaksic.
There are only around 35 of these “smart courts” around the US, and most of them are utilized by universities.
“It’s great that we have got the donations to have this here in New Mexico , and it’s great that we have it available to us”, said Eldorado High school tennis player Ivana Corley.
