Pickleballers now have a simple and affordable way to elevate their game with automated stats, game highlights, and line calling – all by just using their smartphone.
SwingVision, the AI-powered app that has been elevating tennis athletes’ games since 2019, has now expanded to include pickleball.
With SwingVision, picklers can:
- Get automated statistics (like ball speed, shot placement, win percentage, and more).
- Settle disputes on the court with real-time line challenges.
- Import and analyze videos recorded outside of the app.
- Get TV-quality video highlights they can share with family and friends
- And much more.
SwingVision is on a mission to democratize the professional sports experience for athletes of all levels. Already backed by Andy Roddick, Lindsay Davenport, and James Blake, among others, SwingVision has been laser-focused on the tennis industry and its 23.6 million players across the U.S.
Today’s expansion means that picklers across the U.S. can now elevate their game with automated stats, highlights, and line calling with just the phone in their pocket.
“We’re so excited to bring SwingVision’s cutting-edge AI to America’s fastest-growing sport,” said Swupnil Sahai, Co-Founder and CEO of SwingVision. “Our users have been asking us to expand into pickleball for quite some time now, and we’ve answered the call. We can’t wait for all pickleball players to experience the magic of SwingVision.”
“When Pickleballers record their games with SwingVision, they’ll be able to challenge close calls in real-time, right on their wrist with their Apple Watch. When they’re done playing, they’ll immediately get auto generated stats about their shot speed, placement and consistency.
And if that weren’t enough, the app will even create highlight reels so they can watch their entire game with downtime removed and quickly share their best rallies with friends.”
The Most Accurate Single-Camera Solution
SwingVision is the most accurate single-camera solution for AI object tracking in pickleball, delivering automated stats and highlights and officiating from video captured from a player’s iPhone or iPad.
Using its patent-pending object-tracking AI, SwingVision automatically tracks the ball trajectory in 3D using just the users’ device to generate pro-quality stats, highlights, and line calls.
To use, athletes simply point their iPhone or iPad at the court and start recording – and SwingVision’s AI processes video in real-time.
Players can challenge calls instantly from their device or Apple Watch and review stats and highlights immediately.
The “Swing Stick”
With SwingVision, players can also :
- Identify their strengths, improve their weaknesses, and scout their opponent.
- Analyze their rally construction to maximize their chance of winning points.
“SwingVision has proven to be an extraordinary tool in tennis, and now, that magic can be spread even further to pickleball enthusiasts everywhere.”
“Pickleball players have constant arguments on the court due to bad line calls, want highlights of their game without having to do manual video editing, and lack objective data about their performance.
“A Game Changer”
“SwingVision fixes all of these problems,” said Josh Freedman, Director of Pickleball at Topnotch Management. Josh also represents top pro pickleball players and runs the Pickle in the Land tournament.
“From perfecting dinks to drop serves, SwingVision is going to be a game changer for pickleball players everywhere!”
With today’s expansion, SwingVision is putting new capital to use. Last month, SwingVision announced a $6 million Series A financing round to unlock key hires to build tournament-grade officiating and remote coaching capabilities into the platform and expand beyond tennis into pickleball and padel.
SwingVision is on a mission to democratize the professional sports experience for athletes of all levels. Using the power of AI, SwingVision delivers automated stats, highlights, and officiating from video captured from players’ iPhones or iPads. With 15,000 subscribers and counting, SwingVision is poised to become the Strava for racket and ball sports.
