The new product combines data delivered in easy-to-digest dashboards and video and will be available to customers this May. The partnership between Dartfish and Skylab EPA allows for the expertise of both companies to come together and create a unique offering that addresses the needs of practitioners in Padel, the fastest growing sport in the world.
Skylab: EPA is the performance analysis division of Skylab, and exists in the space of digital, science, and coaching. Our products and services generate insights and cut through the noise of data in sports, providing clarity and a deeper understanding of the game.
In partnership with Dartfish, Skylab: EPA has invested in its infrastructure and committed resources to explore how we can apply our expertise to Padel, where we recognise a great opportunity to support practitioners push the limits of performance by delivering on efficient performance analysis practices and having greater evidence of what elite Padel looks like.
The feedback gathered from all competing nations led us to conclude we can make an immediate impact in the sport in the short-term and contribute towards raising competition in the future as Padel’s trajectory increases in gravitas and heads towards a potential Olympic bid.
Laurent Wenker, CCO of Dartfish states: “Until now, coaches identified key trends based on data and reports. By combining video with easy-to-understand dashboards, this upcoming product will further improve padel coaches’ efficiency and effectiveness. We look forward to expanding this product into different sports with Skylab.”
“The important of context is imperative to make better evidence-based decisions in Sport. That’s why Skylab are excited to launch our first product in partnership with Dartfish where we combine our Performance Analysis and Creative expertise with Dartfish’s trusted and robust video platform already validated by the market,” says Ciaran Skinner, Business Development Manager, Skylab.
The launch of the partnership marks an important milestone for Skylab: EPA, who have recently been involved in the sport. Skylab revolutionises how elite sports teams and individuals interact, use, and visualise their data. By packaging performance analysis with industry leading UX and bespoke software, partners will be in the position to make better decisions in sport.
“Through crafted data visualisation we enrich athletes and coaches to better understand and communicate complex strategies, refine plays, and improve decision-making skills,” Ciaran Skinner says.
