FIRST IN NSW: Game changing tech to hit Sydney’s Centennial Parklands Sports Centre

Posted: 19 January 2018

Launched on Friday 19 January 2018, the Centennial Parklands Sports Centre is now the first facility in New South Wales to offer a PlaySight Smart Tennis Court for players. The Smartcourt, which uses state-of-the-art high-performance HD technology helps to improve your game and experience.

Currently only available at Melbourne Park in Victoria, Sydney’s new sophisticated tennis tech has cameras that communicate with each other using advanced 360 degree image processing and analytical algorithms to track and record movement.

World class tennis professionals use PlaySight as their secret weapon because of the instant feedback available with every shot. By reviewing the in-depth video with player statistics and analytics the technology takes the guess work out of your game. Players can also go digital and live stream their hits from any tennis court in the world, create highlight clips, and compare stats to tennis players on a global leaderboard.

Centennial Parklands’ Director of Sport & Recreation, Carla Armanet said: “This technology is game-changing for our thriving tennis community by enhancing and redefining the way players practice, play and engage with the sport at the community sports centre.”

PlaySight fans are excited to use this technology, originally developed by the Israeli Army to help train soldiers, right here in their local community. For the casual entertainment seeker, they can boast about and share their fastest serve or winning backhand on social media.

“I am proud to say we are now one of Australia’s most innovative sporting facilities. We will continue to lead the way in tennis innovation and build an inspiring future for the game by making experiences more fun and engaging” said Erich Weber, General Manager Clublinks.

Located within Moore Park and Sydney’s largest community sporting precinct, the Centennial Parklands Sports Centre is home to 11 tennis, all weather multi-use field and 11 multi-use hardcourts open 7 days a week.
