Tech for Tennis

Tennis Ball In a society bombarded by data and always within arms reach of the Internet, why not sift through the heap of digital info to find tools to improve your tennis game? Although the sport of tennis seemed slow to jump on the trend of using apps and electronic devices to step up individual games, there is now a respectable number of apps awaiting your download.

The Tennis App

Players new to the sport and beginners learning to gain better control over the tennis ball will benefit from the app’s detailed breakdown of different tennis shots, including: Topspin forehand, backhand, two-handed backhand, slice forehand and backhand, approaches, volleys, half-volleys, serves, and overheads. In addition to written instructions, the app features video analysis of each shot, with the ability to slow down the actions.

The app also allows you to follow matches live from all of the top events and track rankings of ATP Singles, ATP Doubles, ATP Doubles Teams, WTA Singles, and WTA Doubles. Check out the latest tennis news through streaming on the app. The app is available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.

Tennis Tracker Lite App

This free version of Tennis Tracker Pro has a user-friendly interface that will help you track a tennis match and collect statistics as fervently as a squirrel collects nuts. Once the match has ended, you can then break down the statistics to analyze play, such as whether more errors were forced off a backhand or a forehand.

This tennis app will help to shed light on your or your player’s tendencies during a match; thus helping you to better understand what aspects of your game need more focus in training and drills.
