Web App Beta

New York, NY [June 2018] – We are very excited to announce that our web app is in public beta now.  All existing Smashpoint users can Log In or new users can Sign Up for a free account. Several years ago, we began our journey by developing the Smashpoint Cloud, which is capable of storing tennis results and calculating professional statistics. We then followed up with an app for iPhones/iPads + Apple Watch that allows tennis players, coaches and parents to track a tennis match in real time or enter finished results. By releasing the web app, we are reaching another major milestone by giving access to all Smashpoint users with any kind of mobile device or computer. The web app interface automatically adjusts itself to your screen size and with single sign-on you can access your Smashpoint account from multiple devices. That way, you always have your up-to-date tennis data at your fingertips.

YOUR BRAIN

Reduce Stress
Tennis helps you deal with physical, mental, social and emotional challenges, which increases your capacity to deal with stress.

Increase Brain Power
From alertness to tactical thinking, tennis enhances the neural connections in your brain. Kids who play tennis regularly get better grades. (According to a 2013 USTA study)

Learn to Solve Problems
Tennis is a sport that is based on evaluating angles, geometry and physics to get the best result, which translates into better problem-solving off the court. In the late 1990s, several experts proposed that tennis, since it requires alertness and tactical thinking, may generate new connections between nerves in the brain and promote a lifetime of continuing brain development.
