Evolve9 and BounxSport Today Announced that the World Leading Under 10s Kids Tennis Development Program is Embedded on Bounx NEW YORK, USA 11 FEBRUARY 2022 – BOUNX and Evolve9 today announced the public release of the world leading under 10s tennis development system on BOUNX. After 12 months of academy testing across 3 continents, the new gamified coach management platform of BOUNX has successfully embedded the unique teaching methods of Evolution Kids Tennis and is now open to all tennis academies.
At the Evolution Kids Tennis Coaches Conference, 8-10 February 2022, Mike Barrell, Founder and CEO of Evolve9 and Julian R. Ellison, Founder and CEO of BOUNX opened this new release to tennis academies across the globe to build more excitement, energy and engagement for Under 10s tennis.
Julian R. Ellison, Founder and CEO of BOUNX said, “we have been working closely with Mike and his Evolution Kids Tennis program for the past 12 months and have seen how his systematic approach to coaching U10 kids combined with the unique gamification and feedback functionality built inside BOUNX, creates an advanced but extremely simple system for tennis academies and clubs to deploy.”
Ellison continued, “embedding key elements of the Evolution Kids Tennis program into our system, we have proven that technology and great coaching can combine to create a new and inspired experience for kids to increase the effectiveness of the hours spent on court. We have taken the best of coaching insights, academy operations and video game engagement methods to create a unique and gamified academy management experience right on a real tennis court.”
Mike Barrell commented, “we have seen the BOUNX technology and Evolution Kids Tennis successfully deploy at leading academies in USA, Australia and New Zealand. Learning to play quality tennis is like any sport, it takes commitment and energy. BOUNX, combined with Evolution Kids Tennis provides the fuel for coaches to create a greater sense or fun and engagement for kids, and crucial direction for academies, coaches and parents.”
Mike Barrell added, “sometimes technology can go too far and lose sight of what matters most for coaches and kids. Kids must enjoy their time on court and want to come back to play more. Coaches must use the time they have on court as efficiently as possible and provide a lasting memory to players. And most importantly, academies need to create better and more sustainable business models so they can keep inspiring better tennis. BOUNX is the first sport tech that truly understands the union of the three core elements that power successful academies.”
The BOUNX and Evolve9 collaboration has been in pilot at three locations on three continents and is ready to be deployed at academies around the world.
