11 Jul 2024

The All England Lawn Tennis Club and Hawk-Eye Innovations will continue their successful collaboration for multiple years, working closely to bring broad-ranging enhancements and innovation to The Championships, Wimbledon.


LONDON, 11 July, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The All England Lawn Tennis Club is revered and renowned for delivering a world-class tennis experience for fans on the Grounds and around the world. To ensure gold-standard ball tracking and officiating services will continue at The Championships, the All England Club have agreed to a multi-year extension of their very successful collaboration with Hawk-Eye Innovations.


Hawk-Eye will continue to provide world-class data tracking and officiating services at The Championships through its player and ball tracking technology, which are used not only for the most precise officiating systems, but also to power advanced performance analytics solutions.


Hawk-Eye first debuted at The Championships in 2007 and each year has brought improvements, efficiencies and innovations to their services. This year, players, media and fans will notice new bounce visualisations on replays, modernised broadcast, live augmented reality views and other innovative ways to use player and ball tracking data to enhance fans’ viewing experience.


Looking ahead, the collaboration will continue to explore how Hawk-Eye’s ever-evolving technology can further amplify the use of player and ball tracking information before, during and after The Championships, increasing the overall engagement and dialogue as records are broken on the historic grass courts.


Bill Jinks, Technology Director at the All England Club, commented: “I am delighted to extend our collaboration with Hawk-Eye. Since 2007, Hawk-Eye has delivered line-calling to the high standard expected at The Championships and has evolved their solution to fit the unique needs of the only Grand Slam played on grass. I am looking forward to working with Hawk-Eye on future innovations.”


Ben Crossing, Hawk-Eye Managing Director, said: “We are beyond thrilled to continue our very successful relationship with the All England Club for multiple years to come. Tennis is at our core and we are excited to continue bringing our very best innovation and technology in order to deliver exceptional experiences at The Championships that the All England Club, the players and millions of fans around the world deserve.”

 

The Championships are staged from 1 to 14 July 2024 at The All England Lawn Tennis Club and the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Semi-finals are set to produce historic moments once again through the weekend.
