Chennai: The Squash Rackets Federation of India (SRFI) has decided to bring in new components in the scoring system that will be used in all SRFI sanctioned tournaments starting with the Jaipur Junior Open beginning September 23.
In keeping with its ideology of bringing more technology into the sport and its administration through a revamped web-site, the SRFI has tied up with the SportsMechanics India Limited.
"As a first step the website of the SRFI has already undergone a revamp and highly intuitive players' profiles were added soon after and more is in store. Referees will do away with the conventional pencil and scoresheet to jot down the running scores but instead switch to iPad. Collected data will be sync to the website and distributed to the other constituents providing additional information about the players show in terms of "winners" "errors", "strokes" and "like", according to a release by the SRFI.
