PlaySight will be the official live streaming and broadcast partner for all TEN-PRO Global Junior events, further delivering on its mission of democratizing technology in sports and connecting the next generation of athletes.
Since 2015, TEN-PRO has organized international tournaments for highly-talented youth tennis players consisting of nine matches played worldwide, seven of which are played in Europe and two in the United States. The tour has more than 6,000 selected junior players from 118 countries. Starting in December at Rafal Nadal’s Academy in Mallorca, TEN-PRO will integrate PlaySight’s Smart live streaming and video technology.
With its unique structure, TEN-PRO is designed to help the next generation of tennis starts to cultivate their competitive game. Regardless of winning or losing, TEN-PRO guarantees each player a minimum of four to eight matches per tournament. Coaching-on-court is also allowed between sets, and the integration of PlaySight will allow coaches and players to go deeper with training and improvement by reviewing video from every match.
Ten-Pro Global Junior Tour Owner & Founder, Goran Novakovic:
“I am very excited to announce PlaySight as our exclusive media, analysis and live streaming partner. Through this partnership, we will be able to bring this technology to all of our venues, adding to the overall tournament experience for our players. To be able to offer video analysis, live streaming and instant replay, this is something that no other event is offering at this level, further differentiating us from other youth tennis events.”
PlaySight Director of Europe, Rodney Rapson:
“We have had the opportunity to follow TEN-PRO closely over the past few years, and it has been a pleasure seeing this tour grow exponentially. Goran and his team do a fantastic job of growing the sport through their initiatives. The global theme of his tour fits right into what we are aiming to achieve at PlaySight. The tour has players representing over 60 countries and is played at some of the best academies across the world. We are now going to enable TEN-PRO players who compete to connect with one another, and to provide an easy platform for them and their coaches, families, and fans to stay up to date with their careers.”
The next TEN-PRO event will take place October 27th through November 3rd, 2018 at the prestigious Mouratoglou Tennis Academy, which is already powered by PlaySight.
