PlaySight’s video tech will drive live streaming and performance tech capabilities at Lubbock Christian University, the latest college tennis partner of Connexa Sports
BALTIMORE, Sept. 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Connexa Sports Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: CNXA) (www.connexasports.com), a leading connected sports technology company, is pleased today to announce its latest collegiate tennis partnership. Lubbock Christian University (LCU) is set to become the latest program to add PlaySight’s connected camera technology for live streaming broadcasts and performance video capabilities. PlaySight works with leading programs throughout all conferences and levels of college tennis, and LCU joins other Texas-based programs with PlaySight installed at their home tennis facilities, including the University of Texas, Southwestern University, TCU, Baylor University and more.
LCU’s men’s and women’s tennis programs are set to begin their inaugural season of NCAA play in 2022-23 under the leadership of Head Coach Jason Speegle, who will serve as the program’s first head tennis coach since 1982. The teams will compete in the Lone Star Conference beginning this fall. The school has not had a tennis program since the 1981-82 season and will play their home matches at the new Penny Gullo Tennis Center on campus, equipped with PlaySight’s cutting-edge tennis technology.
“For LCU, PlaySight was an obvious choice for the tennis program. This technology is an excellent addition to and only enhances the wonderful new Penny Gullo Tennis Center and will allow for opportunities in both the streaming and video review space,” said LCU Athletic Director, Scott Larson.
“Adding PlaySight on all eight courts will set LCU apart as a new premier tennis facility. We will utilize the videos for player development as well as the ability to stream matches to our players’ friends and family all over the world,” said LCU Head Tennis Coach, Jason Speegle. “The Penny Gullo Tennis Center will become a sought after location for tournaments of all kinds with the addition of PlaySight.”
Connexa Sports has partnerships with many collegiate tennis programs for their video and tech needs, and the company has plans to roll out its other products and platforms, including the Slinger Ball Launchers and new AI capabilities, soon. “College tennis is a core focus for us at Connexa, and we are especially thrilled to welcome LCU and bring our technology to their impressive new facility,” said Connexa Sports CEO Mike Ballardie. “We are proud to work with programs, coaches and student-athletes across all levels of collegiate tennis with our affordable and proven offering for broadcast, recruiting and performance enhancements.”
