Zepp Labs and Premier Girls Fastpitch Partner to Bring Advanced Swing Analysis Technology to Softball

LOS GATOS, Calif. – (July 22, 2014) – Zepp Labs and Premier Girls Fastpitch (PGF) have agreed to a multi-year partnership, under which Zepp will be designated as the Official and Exclusive Swing Analysis and Technology Platform of PGF.

Zepp’s advanced 3D technology helps softball players of all ages and skill levels improve their game. The tiny sensor, which easily attaches to the end of a bat, captures over 1000 points of data per swing and creates a perfect 3D rendering on any smartphone or tablet. In addition to seeing their swing in 3D, players, coaches and parents get instant and actionable feedback and data including bat speed, hand speed, time to impact, attack angle and more.

According to Dan Hay, PGF Tournament Director, “Our collaboration with Zepp Labs will enable us to offer our players instant feedback and analysis of their swings, giving them concrete ways to improve. The added-value of this technology and the standards Zepp provides take fastpitch softball and PGF to the next level.”

“We are extremely excited about the opportunity to partner with PGF,” says Jason Fass, CEO of Zepp Labs. “They’ve built the leading softball platform, and we share a mutual goal of helping girls maximize their playing potential. This is a crucial relationship for us as we further incorporate Zepp’s proprietary metrics and platform into the fabric and vocabulary of today’s sports and athletes.”

The PGF National Championships has rapidly grown into one of the most premier softball events in the country. Starting July 19th and running for two weeks, PGF will host approximately 400 of the very top travel ball clubs and college coaches in Huntington Beach, Irvine and Fountain Valley, California, with main focus on the Huntington Beach Sports Complex. Moving forward, all PGF camps and clinics will use the Zepp 3D sensor to capture, measure and analyze player swings at a Zepp hitting station. The Zepp sensor will be used to establish a new standard of swing evaluation metrics.
