Episode 128: Maik Burlage - Smart Tennis

Maik Burlage is a former professional tennis player, and now the founder and CEO of Wingfield. 

The 30-year-old German played professionally for nearly 3 years, before moving into Coaching and then tech innovation. He set up Wingfield with the aim to bring affordable smart match and performance analysis to the wider tennis community.

Wingfield´s technology gives players the opportunity to receive instant video and data from their practise session or match at their local club. 

The data, like your first serve percentage, is delivered on the court or through a smart phone app.
