Tennis is no stranger to incorporating new technologies. Whether it be migrating from legacy wooden racquets to the modern Graphene. Or leveraging electronic line judges and instant replays to take the controversy out of the game.
On the eve of Wimbledon, Singapore-based 9 Degrees has launched QLIPP, the ultimate in high tech Tennis performance sensors. Targeted towards the tennis enthusiast, this device will take your game to the next level. Working with your mobile phone, the QLIPP App works in conjunction to record, analyze and provide you with feedback. QLIPP is compatible with all Tennis racquets and works with both IOS and Android based devices.

You can record every stroke and see detailed stats. QLIPP, provides measurement and video capture of a player’s strokes, spin, shot speed and sweet spot accuracy.In addition, the app has voice feedback so players can hear the app relay their stroke information while they are still on the court playing. Historically the QLIPP app tracks your improvement so that you can see what parts of your game you need to work on.
