Visual demonstrations of the extraordinary tennis skills of Rafael Nadal are now available on – what else – a Smartphone app.
Presented as the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy App, powered by Vstrator, it will be available at the iTunes App Store. Designers say that players at any level pick up some valuable game tips through the video demonstrations contained in the app.
The app offers in-depth tennis tutorials of Rafa’s strokes combined with online coaching tools to make a complete instructional package. The software also allows players to import video for purposes of comparing their own style to that of the master. The videos can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, Email, or SMS Text with friends, family, coaches and other players.
“Now, you don’t have to be a pro to get pro-quality coaching and take your game to the next level,” said Vstrator’s CEO & Founder, Rob Autry. “Rafa is one of the greatest players of all times, and with the Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy App and Vstrator, players at every level now have access to the same elite sports training technology used by world-class coaches and athletes.”
“Vstrator has developed a great app that allows everyone to get the best training experience from anywhere in the world,” said Nadal. “What I also like of this app is that you can be on the courts down the street, at your school or tennis facility, with your friends, coach and teammates and get the info and coaching necessary from my point of view. It’s easy and I am sure that it will help improve your game.”
The new app features nine tutorials covering serve and returns with more instructional sets on the way.
