Augmented Reality Used In Tennis Safeguarding Campaign

Created a month ago, updated a month ago

Sport England have partnered with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) to launch an innovative safeguarding awareness campaign that uses augmented reality technology to help keep those involved in sport safe.

In order to recognise and report a safeguarding issue it is paramount that all parents, coaches and players are aware of the signs of abuse.

The ‘Safe to Play’ campaign will see all LTA registered venues provided with pocket-sized cards to distribute to their members – including parents and players.

These cards will employ augmented reality to act as pocket reminders by providing a range of engaging digital resources.

The cards, when scanned by a smartphone or tablet, will call up an augmented reality overlay on top of whatever is behind the card.
