WORLD TOURNAMENT NEWS
You can click this link hand see some of the action on the courts at the World Tournament In Buffalo which just kicked off this morning.
These four camera's are something new at this years tournament and I assume will be something that they will be continuing to do at future tournaments.
As you look at this court layout in Buffalo it is a little different than most WT's that I have attended in the past. The most common court lay out is 8 courts across which is what we will have in Topeka next year.
Be sure and click the full screen icon in The lower right hand corner of each camera view to get the best view of each of the four camera's. Also take note of the electronic score keeping. Each scorekeeper keeps two courts, Each monitor has stats for two courts on it, the screen is split with one court on the right or left half.
