I love watching tennis. I don’t know why. It’s just weirdly satisfying. I like to play tennis too, but given the choice between watching world class competitors battle it out on the court and playing my own unimpressive (though enthusiastic) game, I’ll take the spectator role any day.

Given my affection for tennis spectatorship, I was pleased to learn of the nifty sounding simulation set up in conjunction with the Australian Open tournament. There’s an interesting write up about it on the West Australian’s website. If it works, it’ll be very cool indeed.

  1. As an avid tennis fan I was excited by this news too, until I heard that IBM had chosen to make it invitation only :-(
    Which is understandable I suppose, given that it would likely draw a fairly serious crowd.

    It’s also fairly demanding in a system sense, according to SL Insider. Footage is available at http://www.smh.com.au/news/biztech/what-a-racquet/2007/01/12/1168105128562.html

  2. Invite only! Ah that explains why I couldn’t track it down in-world. Thanks for the info!

  3. just because it is invite only doesn’t mean people can’t get invites ;)
