In March 2017 the USTA announced a 3-year relationship with Tennis-Ticker for the new USTA National Campus in Orlando. With 100 tennis courts spread across 64 magnificent acres, the USTA National Campus offers unparalleled playing, training and educational experiences. It is the biggest tennis complex in the world!
Tennis-Ticker was chosen by the USTA to provide live scoring services for around 80 events per year. These involve Collegiate, Junior’s, Senior’s and USTA tournaments.
Striving to become the most innovative tennis centre in the world, the Campus management wanted to have a completely new live score experience for fans and spectators.
USTA Campus General Manager Tim Cass asked Tennis-Ticker to develop a truly innovative concept of an integrated service of Live Scoring, Live Streaming and on-court LED Scoreboards. This was achieved in close collaboration with Tennis-Ticker’s partners Playsight and Scortenn. While Playsight was chosen as a live stream provider, Scortenn delivered 80 on-court LED scoreboards. This newly developed system allows to integrate the Tennis-Ticker Live Scores on the Playsight Video Stream and simultaneously to synchronize the Scortenn scoreboards without any delays. Now, all components can be controlled by a single chair umpire, who just has to type in the scores into a Tennis-Ticker PDA. As a result, this live score service not only provides the fans and spectators with the real time scores, but the supported courts also deliver real time statistics for every match and player.
Tim Cass said: “We are thrilled with our relationship with Tennis-Ticker and the live scoring applications. With over 100 National Campus events and 300 plus college matches, live scoring is critical to us delivering memorable experiences to all who visit the USTA National Campus.”
Andreas Reiffer from Tennis-Ticker said: “Tennis-Ticker is very proud to be chosen by the USTA to provide their prestigious Campus in Orlando with our live score services. It is great to see that all levels of the game can benefit from our system, as it helps the USTA to manage their events in an even more efficient way. Through this great partnership we are able to bring one of the most innovative live scoring solutions to the world of tennis.”
