Club News March 2020
Introducing The New MOJJO Smart Court
We are so excited to announce the new MOJJO Smart Court at Gold Key. This is only the second installation of this system in the US, but is a big hit in Europe. So what is a Smart Court? A Smart Court is a sophisticated camera and computer system that can track and evaluate so many different aspects of tennis. With MOJJO, you can now watch your match or training without downtimes in a tennis dedicated video player. The system will show trajectories, ball impacts and of course, loads of stats! The system was originally installed to assist with the growth and training of the Junior Tennis Academy that operates out of the club, but this system is available for anyone interested in learning more about their game! To access the system, you will need to first check in with the front desk. Access to the system is available for $18 per person per session, and each session will provide the player with a wealth of information including a personalized video emailed to you after you play along with statistics! In addition, there will be a limited number of MOJJO Memberships available for $40 per month. For more information or to get acquainted with the new smart court, check with the front desk or your favorite club pro!
