PlaySight Coming to New Cooper Creek Tennis Center

COLUMBUS - Already one of the top tennis programs in the country, Columbus State University, CSU head coach Evan Isaacs and the Columbus Regional Tennis Association (CORTA) have found another way to add to the prestige as Isaacs announced a partnership with PlaySight.

As part of the new Cooper Creek Tennis Center expansion, CSU will equip six courts with PlaySight, a video component with live streaming capabilities that will transform its home court into a fully interactive practice site.

Columbus State will be the first NCAA Division II program in the country to have PlaySight technology on its home courts. Less than 20 NCAA Division I programs have a deal with PlaySight, but top programs such as Oklahoma State, Georgia and Ohio State are already benefiting from PlaySight.

"I can't explain how excited we are that PlaySight is coming to the new Copper Creek Tennis Center," said Isaacs. "This is a game-changer for our program on so many different levels and I can't wait for our student-athletes to get on the court so we can start improving all aspects of their games."

PlaySight will not only help the student-athletes, but also Columbus State tennis fans as well. All home matches will now be streamed online through PlaySight.

On the six PlaySight courts, Isaacs will have the chance to replay live matches and practices to evaluate players. In addition, the Cougars and Lady Cougars will have the opportunity to access their films as well.

"We're thrilled to be working with Evan and the entire Columbus State staff, and excited that Columbus State University will be the first D2 school with PlaySight, joining many of the top Division I schools already using the system," said Josh Graves, Senior Sales Manager of PlaySight. "The technology will give the Columbus State University tennis program an edge, namely in player development, recruiting, and visibility. They will now be able to live stream all of their matches to anyone in the world, record the videos from all of their practices and matches, and use PlaySight's coaching tools online to get the most out of the video review."

Construction at the Cooper Creek Tennis Center is entering its final phase. Nearly seven acres of land has been cleared to make room for the new expansion. The expansion will include 12 new hard courts and nine clay courts. A new clubhouse has also been built, providing locker rooms for the two programs as well as coaches' offices and new offices for CORTA.

Columbus State will begin its fall season in the upcoming weeks.
