Slow Motion Video Playback

Did you know that QLIPP also has a Slow Motion Video Playback function?

To get that perfect stroke, tennis players have to acquire the right posture, footwork, the amount of spin, the tilt of the racquet and so much more all at once. As tennis players ourselves, we understand just how difficult and frustrating it can be when your efforts do not show on the court.

With our Slow Motion Video Playback, not only are you able to replay your strokes, you are also able to analyze them in great detail by watching all your strokes in slow motion.

With this, you will be able to pinpoint the areas of flaws that you never know you had and work on them.

Our slow-motion feature allows you to slow down your strokes by half to an eighth of its original speed so that every single detail will be made visible to you.

QLIPP daily mail body

The Daily mail has one of the largest readership base in the United Kingdom and we are still ecstatic to be given a mention!

This article published on 30 May also features other intriguing innovations that make getting fit less daunting and is definitely a must-read if you are ready for a peek of what the future of sports technology holds.

As seen in the article, we had the opportunity to work with Mary Ngiam, a professional tennis player and coach who has competed on both the national and international level in her career so far.

Representing her country during the World Junior Tennis Competition in 2002 and boasting more than five years of coaching experience, it was great to see Mary Ngiam using our QLIPP Ultimate Tennis Performance Sensor.

For those of you who recall, Sarah Pang is also the star of our first demonstration video:

We would like to give our heartfelt congratulations to Sarah Pang  for being the only Singaporean to enter the WTA professional  circuit and also wish her all the best for the upcoming SEA Games 2015.

At this point, if you cannot wait to have your very own QLIPP sensor, be sure to mark 24 June down on your calendar for we will soon be launching the sensor at a special price!

The future of Tennis

Tennis has been around since centuries ago and since then , there have been numerous changes to this sport. For one, tennis is progressively shedding its elitist image and increasing its penetration to the masses.

Just two years ago, Forbes published an article that painted a seemingly gloomy outlook for this sport.Titled American Tennis Isn’t Dying But It Does Need Help“, it raised several alarming concerns including the startling fact that for the first time in 101 years, no tennis players from the States had progressed to the third round at Wimbledon.

To summarize this extensive read, here are the factors deemed to have contributed to the near extinction of those glory days for American tennis players in 2013:

1) Failure of the  United States Tennis Association ‘s player development programme

2) Tennis, among other sports, has one of the steepest learning curve that can be unforgiving especially for beginner players

3) Low penetration rate of tennis to children not well acquainted with the sport

Reviving American tennis would then, require the cooperation of “… all of them, from the USTA to private academies and independent coaches, are sorely needed for the country to succeed in the sport.” However, with the addition of rule #31 by the ITF in 2014, we believe that this tremendous burden on those tennis powers can be lightened.

Essentially with this new rule, it means that the ITF has given its consensus to the use of technological tennis equipment during competitions, reflecting the rising popularity and increasing usage of such smart devices by professional players. While most of you might already be aware of this, what is actually more exciting is that such tennis technology could be the solution needed to get more into this sport and could even be providing us with a thrilling preview of the future of tennis.

With accurate statistical feedback provided in real time that analyze each stroke and ball that you hit, it is now easier than ever for new players. These smart devices including sensors would also allow tennis coaches to provide data in order to enhance their students’ learning experience. While it might be too ambitious for us to say now that these devices are able to groom you to a season pro playing on the Wimbledon courts, we believe that with them, the future of tennis is in fact, quite exhilarating.

At this point, before we sound a little too optimistic about the future of sports technology, Tech crunch’s recently published article, Investors Swing For The Fences with $1B In Sports Tech Dealsshould have you thinking otherwise.

So, perhaps now should be the right time for your to invest in your own smart device and start materializing your passion for tennis (or any other sport actually) because as cliché as it might sound, practice can indeed, make one perfect.
