Ready for interactiveRACQUETBALL?
The sport of racquetball is about to undergo a technological transformation.
Munich based tech-start up Fun With Balls GmbH has already revolutionised the sport of squash with the development of interactiveSQUASH, a platform that upgrades existing squash courts into technologically-advanced training facilities.
The concept is simple. Equip the court with a projector, sensors and series of cameras, and transform the front wall into an interactive screen much like a handheld device. Now the time has come for interactiveRACQUETBALL, a system specially designed for existing racquetball courts that will increase the popularity of the sport and introduce it to a whole new generation of players.
In order to fully grasp what an interactiveRACQUETBALL system would entail, it’s useful to know how the interactiveSQUASH system operates. interactiveSQUASH is a game-changing fusion of sports and technology. Immersive projection graphics combine exciting video-game-style gameplay to transform the classic game of squash into a decidedly 21st century experience. The patented hard and software is distributed internationally in partnership with ASB SquashCourts – the leading sports court builders.
Now players can learn squash with digital coaching and get into shape with exciting games. With over 20 games and training modules available already and more to come, developers will also be able to create and play their own games through our open platform. For the first time ever players can compete, play together, challenge the computer, or go solo. For more check out interactivesquash.com
With the first interactiveSQUASH courts installed and operating, we are now expanding to racquetball. Although, similar, racquetball is clearly an altogether different sport than squash. As such, we are currently adapting the system to meet the needs of existing racquetball courts. The first interactiveRACQUETBALL court will be installed this year and will offer a wide range of games and training modules specifically designed for the sport of racquetball.
The system itself presents a great opportunity to help grow the sport on the international scale. Already, interactiveSQUASH has increased the numbers of hours played on existing courts and has attracted a new younger audience.
The interactiveRACQUETBALL system could be extremely useful for existing racquetball court owners and court admins in order to increase court use and could also initiate the sport to a whole new generation. We are intent on increasing the popularity of the sport, especially for a 21st century audience.
We are in the process of partnering with some of the leading experts and organisations of the sport to help develop the best possible product for racquetball players and court owners.
