FlightScope tennis company team

THE COMPANY

We create among rolling fields.

But we act worldwide.

What you see is efficient technical support and a team of engineers 100% focused on completing the task. Yes, that is who we are. But a very important part of our work goes unseen by our clients in day-to-day business.

It is when we become

inventors.

The technologies that serve you in the form of already mature, proven products and services originate in Poland.

More specifically, in Żernica near Gliwice, in a modern, perfectly equipped research and development center, picturesquely situated among fields. It is the birthplace of all our ideas for providing even more great solutions for the players, coaches, organizers and fans of the World of Tennis. The best of these become plans we turn into reality in dedicated, specialized teams. It is also here that we test and check the solutions and apply the necessary corrections.

It is only once the ideas have turned into plans, the plans have produced prototypes, and these in turn have become thoroughly tested, perfected technologies that we embark on a plane, and you get to meet the engineers.
