The Tennis Center at Druid Hills is known as one of the best in the region, and was was completely reconstructed from the ground up in 2007. Over the past decade, the Tennis Center has been the recipient of Georgia Professional Tennis Association’s “Georgia Peach” for most outstanding facilities and programs three times.
“We plan on offering on-court and off-court services and we all feel PlaySight will have a great impact on lessons, clinics, and the overall teaching and learning experience,” said Raphael Rodrigues, the Director of Tennis at DHGC. The Tennis Center boasts 11 courts, seven sub-irrigated clay and four hard, and PlaySight’s industry-standard connected camera technology will be installed on each court for live streaming and multi-angle coaching and video analysis capabilities.
PlaySight provides the video technology and live streaming capabilities for close to 100 collegiate tennis programs across the NCAA, including the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech, and counts the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and the USTA’s National Campus among its partners in the sport. Leading facilities, clubs and federations across the country and globe have relied on PlaySight for their video technology needs since the company’s inception in 2015.
Druid Hills also intends to use PlaySight for its automated production and streaming broadcast capabilities, much like its partners across collegiate tennis do. “We plan to utilize our PlaySight live streaming during our major tournaments of the year (6), and possible during league matches across the ALTA, USTA, T2, and Ultimate Tennis,” continued Rodrigues.
“Our teaching staff are thrilled about the cameras and can’t wait to use them. I think PlaySight will give us a competitive advantage where, besides just working on players mechanics, coaches and players can also look at match analysis, including shot selection, court positioning and overall strategy.”
