We provide you with a simple evaluation basis for your shots. Here you will not only find out how the Drill Scores are measured, but also what possibilities they offer for your training. 🎯
How cool would it be if your playing skills could easily be classified by simple values? Reference values that allow you to compare yourself with other players but also make your development measurable at the same time... With the Drill Scores we provide exactly these possibilities for your shots.
What is the actual point of evaluating a shot? From a rational point of view, the goal should always be to create as many problems as possible for your opponent. Its quality is determined by various criteria: the accuracy, the speed and, depending on the context, the spin or the height above the net. How accurately am I able to play a ball to where I want it to go? And how much can I both vary with speeds and bring a certain height to my shot?
Broken down to a single score for the forehand, backhand or serve, we combine the criteria mentioned above. In this way, Wingfield not only offers exciting insights, but also eliminates one thing from training analysis: complexity!
And this is how they are measured:
You can measure the Drill Scores with the drill mode. They contain a range of information that is tracked by Wingfield during a shot. Based on this, each individual shot is rated on a scale of 0-100. In simple terms, the faster and more accurate you play on a target field defined by us, the higher your score will be. You receive a speed and accuracy value for each total score.
Depending on whether you want to test your groundstrokes or serves, the target field we set varies (see graphic). For the groundstrokes, the target is in the back corner of the single field. The "bullseye" to be hit is located 1m in the field, measured from the corner. From this point, all awarded scores decrease evenly and circularly – regardless of whether they are in the field or out of bounds. Shots into the net are always scored with 0 points.
For serves, the targets are located along the T-line. The awarded scores also decrease here with a higher distance to the target point (see graph). Balls that go out of bounds are - contrary to the groundstrokes - penalised more.
In the speed evaluation, we assume a 100% value of 210km/h for serves, and 160km/h for groundstrokes. From these peak values, the points awarded first decrease more strongly, then a little more weakly. Here you can find out how to test your skills with the drill mode.

New possibilities to compare
The race for the high scores is on. The Drill Scores are not only the perfect tool for ranking your own performance. They also spark the competitive spirit between us athletes - the desire for perfection.
Club-internal and global rankings allow comparison with players from all over the world. Decentralised challenges motivate players to spend even more time on the courts. What is your high score? 😉
