PlaySight Continues To Expand Across College Tennis
When we last updated the ITA tennis community, PlaySight was busy installing SmartCourts across the country – literally. From Stanford University in Palo Alto, California to the Volunteers in Knoxville, Tennessee, to the Big Green in Hanover, New Hampshire – collegiate tennis programs everywhere are benefitting from PlaySight’s live streaming, video, and analytics tennis technology.
As the fall season quickly approaches, we’re thrilled to announce a few more programs that have added and will be adding PlaySight technology in the coming days, weeks, and months. Read on below to see if your favorite school now has the most cutting edge analytics and video technology in tennis on their home courts.
The University of Georgia
In addition to being the very first college partner for PlaySight (we first installed a SmartCourt with the Bulldogs back in 2013), Georgia is playing host next year for the 2017 NCAA Championships. We are bringing live streaming and video analysis technology to the men’s and women’s programs to utilize during the fall and dual season, and to provide streaming from the NCAAs next year as well – from every single court.
The University of Wisconsin
Wisconsin will be adding PlaySight technology to their program this fall, joining conference rivals Northwestern, Ohio State, and Iowa as PlaySight-enabled programs. The Big Ten is quickly becoming the most technologically-advanced conference in collegiate tennis.
And the Badgers are looking to PlaySight to help their program continue its rise into the spotlight after spending so many years in the shadows of their rival programs and even other sports within the campus in Madison.
“Whether it is because of the location or results on the court, the program has been an afterthought for both students and recruits over the years. Wisconsin has never been known for tennis.
But with the additions of new head coach Danny Westerman last season and assistant coach Scoville Jenkins two seasons ago, combined with the efforts of their underdog team and a few new faces, the label slapped on Wisconsin is slowly peeling away.”
The University of Nebraska
The Cornhuskers are gearing up for their first season in the new Dillon Tennis Complex – one of college tennis’s nicest facilities.
Now the Huskers have seating for 1,400 combined in their new on-campus, six-court indoor building and their 12-court outdoor complex on the northwest corner of Innovation Campus just south of 14th Street and Cornhusker Highway. Every court has an electronic scoreboard, and there's a big scoreboard in the middle of the six-court block that tracks every match and keeps team score.
The Boilermakers are the first college in the nation to have PlaySight technology across multiple sports. The basketball programs installed a SmartCourt earlier this summer, and the tennis programs will be adding PlaySight technology this fall.
Mississippi State University
The Bulldogs will be the latest SEC school to add PlaySight video and analytics technology to their home facility. Now fans and alumni of Mississippi State across the world will be able to tune in to all home matches via PlaySight’s live streaming.
Columbus State University
The Cougars are the first Division II program to add PlaySight, and head coach Evan Isaacs is excited.
“I can't explain how excited we are that PlaySight is coming to the new Copper Creek Tennis Center. This is a game-changer for our program on so many different levels and I can't wait for our student-athletes to get on the court so we can start improving all aspects of their games."
Carnegie Mellon University
Sticking with the theme of firsts – CMU is the first Division III tennis program to add PlaySight, and the Tartans kicked off their fall schedule with a home match over the weekend.
