Tennis and Technology

Tennis is one of the top recreational sports in the United States and is one of the most heavily marketed sports worldwide. As the popularity of Tennis grows, so does the impact and influence of technology in the sport.

From the creation of the first non-wood racquet to the invention of Hawkeye and beyond, the forward march of technology is a wonderful and relentless thing. It is a thing that directly impacts the life of every pro on the tour every day of their lives. That impact, however, doesn't only impact the pros.

Simple recreational players like myself are affected as well. There is not a day that I walk onto a tennis court that I don't thank the hardware wizards at Babolat for every misguided shot that I hit that somehow inexplicably lands in. How people ever played the game before humanity discovered composites, I'll never know.

This is what led me to start Hi-Fi Tennis. As both a technology professional and tennis enthusiast, I love finding those places where Tennis and Technology meet. My purpose for this site is to provide technology help and service to members of the Tennis community. If you need help or assistance, just let me know. In the meantime, I'll try to keep the content coming.
