The Atlanta-based tennis club is the latest in the country to add PlaySight’s industry-leading live streaming and performance video tennis platform to its facilities, professionals and members
BALTIMORE, May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Connexa Sports Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:CNXA) (www.connexasports.com) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, PlaySight Interactive (www.playsight.com) works with the Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta. Renowned as one of the best in the area, the tennis center at Druid Hills was rebuilt from the ground up in 2007. In the past decade, the tennis center has been awarded the Georgia Professional Tennis Association’s “Georgia Peach” for Most Outstanding Facilities and Programs three times.
“We plan to offer services on and off the court and we all feel that PlaySight will have a huge impact on the classroom, the clinics and the overall teaching and learning experience.” said Raphael Rodrigues, the director of tennis at DHGC. The tennis center will feature 11 courts, seven underwater clay courts and four hard courts, and industry-standard PlaySight connected camera technology will be installed on each court for live streaming and multi-angle coaching and video analytics capabilities.
PlaySight provides the video technology and live streaming capabilities for nearly 100 collegiate tennis programs across the NCAA, including the University of Georgia and Georgia Tech, and counts the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and the USTA National Campus among its sport partners. Leading institutions, clubs and associations across the country and around the world 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 collegiate tennis partners are doing. “We plan to utilize our PlaySight live streaming during our major tournaments of the year and potentially during league games in ALTA, USTA, T2 and Ultimate Tennis.” continued Rodrigues.
“Our teachers love the cameras and can’t wait to start using them. I think PlaySight will give us a competitive edge as coaches and players can not only work on player mechanics but also look at game analysis including shot selection, court positioning and overall strategy.”
