PlaySight, the premier Smart Court technology, and MyJourney Technologies, Inc., the developer of My Pickleball Coach App developer, have developed a strategic partnership to provide pickleball players with a personal coach directly connected to PlaySight Cameras.
Once recorded and uploaded, world-class coaches like Collin Johns, Martina Kochli, Zane Navatil, John Cincola, and Jordan Briones analyze players’ skills while providing 1-1 coaching tailored to any player level.
Players simply scan a QR code and play to have specific skills improved upon (such as their third shot drop) while also having their provisional DUPR rating calculated from the film.
Real-Time Performance Insights
As we reported back in August last year, PlaySight technology empowers athletes with real-time performance insights.
With features like immediate video replay, AI-driven automated highlights, and interactive coaching tools, players of all levels can enhance their skills and celebrate accomplishments in unprecedented ways.
A Seamless Connection
Chen Shachar, CEO of PlaySight, said, “PlaySight provides each player a seamless connection of their personal videos to their personal coach, providing key improvement metrics customized to the individual.
“This partnership with My Pickleball Coach results in an immersive user experience for every pickleball player. The ROI of the relationship is win-win because when players improve, they play more and invite their friends to play – which drives revenue to Pickleball Clubs and Country Clubs, Hotels, and Court Owners.”
“With 35 million people now playing pickleball, the PlaySight/MyPickleball Coach relationship provides a highly scalable and low-cost way for every player to understand their skill level and how to improve, which directly relates to creating their sense of belonging in the sport.”
Highly Scalable And Low Cost
Rick Geritz, CEO of MyJourney Technologies, Inc., remarked, “With 35 million people now playing pickleball, the PlaySight/MyPickleball Coach relationship provides a highly scalable and low-cost way for every player to understand their skill level and how to improve, which directly relates to creating their sense of belonging in the sport.”
One of the 10 MyPickleball Coach experiences is the DUPR Assessment Event, which allows facilities to launch an event where PlaySight’s fixed or mobile camera records their play, and that is automatically uploaded to the My Pickleball Coach App.
World-class coaches then personally review the players’ skills to produce the player’s baseline DUPR rating.
Geritz continues, “Just like the GHIN handicap works in golf, once players get their DUPR score, social members begin transitioning to pickleball, golf and tennis players engage, and facility revenues grow.”
The PlaySight/My Pickleball Coach experience is available to indoor and outdoor Pickleball Clubs, Country Clubs, Hotels, and pop-up events.

The “Dazzle Spin N Grin”
Meanwhile, an original design submitted to the National Sales Office of InventHelp may have a large impact on the world of pickleball.
A patent-granted invention looks to be an effective training aid for pickleball players. It aims to simulate the strikes needed to impart various types of spin to the ball when volleying.
As a result, it helps the player develop the muscle memory needed to impart forward spin, backspin, or side spin to the ball at will. The invention features a versatile and portable design that is easy to use, so it is ideal for pickleball players.
The inventor, whose identity is yet unknown but hails from Traverse City, Michigan, commented, “I wanted to create a more efficient way for a pickleball player to learn how to impart spin to a ball and make his volleys more unpredictable, so I invented the DAZZEL SPIN N GRIN.
My design would make the player a more formidable opponent, and it could enhance performance during competitive matches.”
It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
