Lake Nona’s $70 million U.S. Tennis Association complex will now feature the “most cutting edge” technology on its courts, thanks to a new deal with the company that invented the SmartCourt.
Tenfly, N.J.-based PlaySight on May 2 announced it will equip all 102 tennis courts at the new USTA National Campus with its video and analytics technology. All the tennis courts at the 63-acre campus will feature PlaySight’s Live Court high-definition live streaming, including 32 SmartCourts with analytics and multi-angle video analysis, the release said.
The new technology will allow for real-time statistics and analysis, instant reply, line calling and mobile and social interaction, the release said.
“The USTA National Campus will be this country’s model tennis facility, and with the addition of PlaySight, the USTA can bring technology generally reserved for top professionals to players of all ages and abilities for the first time,” USTA Executive Director and COO Gordon Smith said in a prepared statement.
