Tennis superstar Andy Murray has made an investment into a tennis app. Tennis app Deuce has a goal to make the game more affordable and accessible to everyone in Great Britain. The app was originally launched on 11 May but it is expected to be fully launched just before The Championships -- which is due to be kicked off on 2 July.
"The team behind Deuce are really impressive and they have a working knowledge of tennis and tennis clubs in this country so they really understand the issues and the potential," Murray said. "Tennis is such a great sport with so many benefits - physical, mental and social, but we simply don’t have enough people playing in this country. "We need to fill empty courts with people playing more often and Deuce uses today’s technology to do this in a simple, welcoming and affordable way." Deuce app inventor Matt Willcocks didn't spare words when describing the app.
"Using today’s technology Deuce will provide its users with accessible, great value coaching, courts and playing opportunities at the tap of a button. Think Airbnd for tennis with the simplicity of Uber," Willcocks said.
Meanwhile, Murray continues to recover from a hip surgery as he targets a grass season comeback. The 31-year-old is scheduled to play his first event since Wimbledon in s-Hertogenbosch. The s-Hertogenbosch event is due to be kicked off on 11 June.
