Over the last several years we have seen augmented reality (AR) technology transform many industries.
Sports, however, seemed to have shown little progress in that aspect. We use this technology through our Augmented Reality Tennis app in order to help users visualize targets by showing interactive holograms over the live environment. These virtual targets can be used for training patterns, hitting spots on the court etc. This type of learning could help players and coaches in number of ways.
Engaging training sessions
AR technology can speed up learning by improving the experience, providing better visualization of the training session, and further engaging players and coaches. AR-based learning experience makes tennis learning easily consumable and enjoyable.
There is no learning replacement for hands-on experience. Unfortunately, traditional training methods don’t always make hands-on experiences possible. However, AR can help bring tennis training anywhere and provide players with visual displays as they learn new skills and correct technical errors. Improving the effectiveness of our users’ training sessions is our ultimate goal.
Onboarding new tennis staff
AR experiences can be a great way to onboard new tennis staff by offering a more interesting and efficient way of learning about the tennis club, different tennis programs, schedules, and settle them into their new roles.
