SmartCourts are currently powering leading federations, academies, 40 NCAA Division 1 schools, and clubs including the USTA’s new National Campus and high performance facility in Lake Nona, Florida. In addition to tennis, PlaySight is working with top teams across several other sports including the 2015 NBA Champion Golden State Warriors.
