St. Louis, Mo. – The WashU community now has a new way to follow the men’s and women’s tennis programs. Launching in conjunction with this weekend’s men’s tennis NCAA Regionals, fans will be able to enjoy watching tennis matches online via PlaySight, a multi-camera platform that offers full HD video recording and streaming of live action.
Made possible by current parents Jodi and Dean Yamamoto, BS ’87, JD ’90, the PlaySight technology features a camera on each court at the Tao Tennis Center. “We are extremely grateful to Jodi and Dean. Their incredible generosity ensures our fans have access to our home match streams in high definition from anywhere,” said Anthony J. Azama, Associate Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and the John M. Schael Director of Athletics. “We are thankful for the Yamamotos’ commitment to our scholar-champions and for bringing this opportunity to fruition for the tennis programs and the WashU community.”
“It’s an honor for Jodi and me to help make this resource available to the WashU community. Living in Hawaii, we know how valuable it is to be able to see the team compete from afar,” shared Dean. “We are excited that fellow parents, alumni, and fans will be able to watch our amazing student-athletes and cheer them on from across the globe.”
To view matches on PlaySight, fans will need visit and subscribe to the WashU Tennis homepage: https://web.playsight.com/facility/washington-university/home. Prior to being able to access matches, users must sign-up for a free account on the PlaySight website. Streams of concluded matches will be available via on-demand if viewers are unable to watch in real time.
The No. 7 WashU men’s tennis team will be in action on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Tao Tennis Center. The Bears will face Luther, as they host the St. Louis Regional of the NCAA Division III Tennis Championships. Visit the NCAA Regional Tournament Page.
