Just because all the American men, and any ties to New Jersey with Christina McHale going out in the second round, are out of the US Open, doesn’t mean that New Jersey still cannot have an influence, at least at a distance, as the tournament plays out its second week. A company with a New Jersey base, and even close ties to world No. 1 Novak Djokovic, is helping change the way people of any age play tennis.
The company is called PlaySight, and it is one of several companies that are trying to bring tennis into the 21st century through the use of technology. With a new office in Bergen County and the system installed at both the Bogota and Tenafly Racquet Clubs, this new cloud-based tracking technology is helping make tennis more fun and more interesting for anyone who uses the system and picks up a racquet.
