The USTA National Campus has billed itself as an innovative, one-of-a-kind facility that will serve as the new Home of American Tennis. Now, roughly six months until its completion, the Orlando, Fla.-based campus has the court technology to match its ambition.

The 64-acre, 100-court facility will be equipped with PlaySight technologies, the company behind Smart Court and the most cutting-edge video and analytics in tennis, providing the best technology available to help players of all ages and abilities improve their games.

With the partnership, the USTA continues its role as a pioneer in the sport. By utilizing PlaySight’s analytics and video platform technologies, the USTA National Campus will be the most advanced training facility in the country. Every single one of its 100-plus court will be equipped with PlaySight’s Live Court high-definition live streaming technology, and 32 Smart Courts will provide analytics and multi-angle video analysis.  

“The USTA National Campus will be this country’s model tennis facility,” said Gordon Smith, USTA executive director and chief operating officer. “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 Player Development, along with its coaches and players, who will be headquartered on the campus, will now have access to PlaySight’s many tools and applications. That includes the all-in-one video and analytics solution, which includes video and live streaming, real-time statistics and analytics, instant replay, line calling, and a mobile and social on- and off-court experience.

Additionally, the PlaySight technology will be accessible to everyone who visits the campus, including local players and those participating in the 70 or so national, individual and collegiate events set to be hosted on site each year.

“We are proud to be part of the USTA National Campus – it is a game-changer for everyone and will set a very high standard,” said Chen Shachar, co-founder and chief executive officer of PlaySight. “The adoption of advanced technology is transforming tennis into a hi-tech sport that will attract more players, especially juniors, to play and watch tennis, increasing tennis exposure and popularity in America and worldwide.”
