babolat_play_wideDear Tennis Fan,

As you will know Babolat have launched the their new Babolat Play racket. The main concept being that your racket can feed data back to an App on your phone or tablet via bluetooth. Having tried the racket it’s absolutely superb and well worth having a go.

Tweener is the first mobile app in the UK to offer players of all abilities the opportunity to find, challenge and play opponents all for free. The app offers the chance to play for achievements or real life awards.

The outline of the day

  • 12.00pm players meet in the lounge and listen to a short presentation on the products.
  • 12.30pm players play a tie break tournament getting at least one match playing connected.
  • After each match, data will be analysed by the Babolat and Tweener team.
  • Each match will be logged on the tweener system and points added to the leaderboard.
  • 4.00pm tournament winners will be announced and prizes awarded.

If the above sounds like a fun day out please register to play. Please note that there is a limit of 32 places.
