Technology company Racketware has announced a multi-year partnership with the Professional Squash Association (PSA).

Racketware, based in England, has created a motion tracking sensor, designed to help players of all levels to improve their game.

The sensor is attached to a player’s racket and sends data to a companion mobile application, which contains statistics to help players analyse their swing, length of rallies, shot quality and fitness.

The new sensor is being released today, and at just 9.5 grams weighs less than a squash grip.

As part of Racketware becoming an official partner of the PSA, Squash Media & Marketing (SMM), the new commercial arm of the PSA, has been appointed to take over the PSA’s communications and marketing functions.

"We are delighted to welcome Racketware as an official partner and - through SMM - we look forward to working closely with their team in the coming years," said the PSA’s chief commercial officer Tommy Berden.

"Racketware has produced an innovative motion tracking sensor for squash which will enable players to analyse their game in greater depth and we are excited about the new possibilities that this brings to the sport.

"With a new product launch on the horizon, it’s a great time to partner with Racketware and see how we can jointly improve the experience of squash players of all ability levels.

"This partnership is evidence of our continued commitment to exploring innovative new technologies to enhance the sport both at a professional level and at a grassroots level."

Speaking about the partnership Racketware’s founder Dr Paul Mellor said: "We believe that by working together we can ensure that new and emerging technologies can be incorporated into the sport in a way that enhances enjoyment for both players and fans, whilst also helping to improve player performance and encouraging participation at all levels."
