PlaySight/ITA Match of the Week
The Big Ten/Ivy Challenge
Date: Friday, January 29, 2016
Time: 5 p.m. ET
Location: Billie Jean King USTA National Tennis Center – Queens, New York
Teams Playing (men): No. 34 Princeton Tigers vs. Michigan Wolverines
Princeton University is PlaySight’s “hometown” team, as they are located just down the road in Princeton, New Jersey, from the PlaySight head offices in Tenafly. The men’s team, coached by Billy Pate (along with assistant Damian Hume), has had PlaySight’s technology for over a year now, and they use Smart Courts in every practice and training session, as well as during all home matches.
Thankfully for the Tigers, they will be playing their weekend matches at the Billie Jean King USTA National Tennis Center, which has two permanent Smart Courts installed for members and professional tennis players to use year-round.
PlaySight athlete Matija Pecotic, who qualified for the 2016 Australian Open before bowing out due to injury, is a former Princeton Tiger tennis star. Hear from Pecotic about what PlaySight means to his game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qbax8DW9y9A/
