SevenSix Player App Analyses Tennis Swings with Computer Vision Technology. A Norwegian based start-up, the SevenSix aims to employ digital technology and latest trends to analyse players’ performances and coaching techniques.
Initially, they began with an online video coaching program which had a global reach. Coaches and players worldwide got access to this uniform platform, resulting in a wide sharing of experiences, techniques and strategies. Coaches had a wide network to reach to a greater number of students. The players can upload their videos of their shots and share it with the coach they have selected. Besides this, more data from smart apps and sensors could also be integrated like FitBit, Zepp etc. The coach will then provide a complete feedback of the video clip and also suggest him ways to further improve his play. Also, he will give related advice regarding training that he must do, how much more practice is needed and so on.
