Racquet Club of Memphis Announces West Clinic to Sponsor Hawk-Eye Instant Replay During 2013 U.S. National Indoor Championships
Memphis, Tenn. – The Racquet Club of Memphis is pleased to announce that The West Clinic, one of the nation’s premier cancer clinics, will be the official title sponsor of the Hawk-Eye instant replay system during the 2013 U.S. National Indoor Championships to be held February 16-24, 2013. Hawk-Eye has transformed the game of tennis for the past seven years as the most successful instant replay system in sports. The network of cameras and computers accurately calculates the bounce mark made by the ball on the court and reliably determines whether a shot is in or out. Hawk-Eye assures players, officials, and fans that the correct call is made with each point.
The West Clinic in partnership with Methodist Healthcare and The University of Tennessee Health Science Center is proud to bring this revolutionary technology to the U.S. National Indoor Championships for a second year. According to Sylvia Richey, MD, Medical Oncologist with The West Clinic, “We are pleased to once again partner with the Racquet Club of Memphis as the 2013 sponsors of the Hawk-Eye. As in tennis, when it comes to cancer treatment, The West Clinic meets cancer’s challenge head on with state-of-the-art diagnostics, precise interventional procedures, and targeted treatments, a powerful reassurance to patients that the right call is being made for their care.”
“It’s extremely fitting that The West Clinic, an organization known for its state-of-the-art technology, is bringing this innovation to the U.S. National Indoor for another year,” states Peter Lebedevs, Tournament Director. “No need for a call interfering with the players’ mental game or result anymore. Players simply raise their right hand to challenge a call and the Hawk-Eye takes it from there. As part of our ongoing commitment to the future of professional tennis in Memphis, we are continuing to find ways of improving the experience of tournament goers. Hawk-Eye was a huge hit among fans and players alike during our 2012 tournament.”
The 2013 U.S. National Indoor Championships will be held February 16-24 at The Racquet Club of Memphis. Individual tickets to the event are on sale now and available at The Racquet Club of Memphis or by calling (901) 765-4401.
