COACH RAPSON ON CNN TALKING ABOUT PLAYSIGHT


08.09.2016

'Can't argue with a video'

"It is a great tool where we don't have to say so much," said Rodney Rapson, an Australian tennis coach and co-founder of the Base Tennis academy north of Koblenz, Germany. "Some coaches provide kids with information overload, a lot of talking." 
 
Base Tennis has installed the SmartCourt technology on all of its five indoor courts and became a distributor for the company in Western Europe this year. 
 
At Base Tennis, Playsight is used by the likes of German pro Dustin Brown (who trains there during the clay-court season), some top German juniors and club players. Most of its users are between eight and 18 years of age; they can watch their matches or share them on social media through the cloud. 
It's helped many advance their game.
 
"Players can learn more from visual feedback than from listening to someone," Rapson said. "You can't argue with a video."
