A Story about how great coaching hels athletes to win on and off the court.
The Aspen Institute research shows the compounding benefits of sport. Active kids do better in life. Especially if they have active parents.
BOUNX is rooted
with the ideal that children
have the right to sport
and great coaching.
A coach is far more than just teaching a student how to hit a ball, it is about building their character and self-esteem so they can fight the devils that exist in the world, improving their enthusiasm for education and lastly, helping them them get better at tennis.
Our belief is that Great Coaching combined with the right tools will inspire more youth to play more sport and in turn become more confident in their lives.

The Art of the Badge
The BOUNX formula allows great coaches to run their academy on autopilot so they can spend more quality time on court, deck, pitch or wherever they do their best coach wizardry.
No two players are the same.
Great coaches know this.
Badges by BOUNX have been curated for coaches
and teachers to recognize the magical moments
in a student’s development.
Coaches who understand how to make badges
and the moments they represent memorable and
meaningful are more likely to help students achieve
more than they thought possible.

Julian R. Ellison, Founder and CEO of BOUNX said, “we have been working closely with Mike and his Evolution Kids Tennis program for the past 12 months and have seen how his systematic approach to coaching U10 kids combined with the unique gamification and feedback functionality built inside BOUNX, creates an advanced but extremely simple system for tennis academies and clubs to deploy.

”Ellison continued, “embedding key elements of the Evolution Kids Tennis program into our system, we have proven that technology and great coaching can combine to create a new and inspired experience for kids to increase the effectiveness of the hours spent on court. We have taken the best of coaching insights, academy operations and video game engagement methods to create a unique and gamified academy management experience right on a real tennis court.

”Mike Barrell commented, “we have seen the BOUNX technology and Evolution Kids Tennis successfully deploy at leading academies in USA, Australia and New Zealand.

BOUNX, combined with Evolution Kids Tennis provides the fuel for coaches to create a greater sense or fun and engagement for kids, and crucial direction for academies, coaches and parents.

”Mike Barrell added, “sometimes technology can go too far and lose sight of what matters most for coaches and kids. Kids must enjoy their time on court and want to come back to play more. Coaches must use the time they have on court as efficiently as possible and provide a lasting memory to players. And most importantly, academies need to create better and more sustainable business models so they can keep inspiring better tennis. BOUNX is the first sport tech that truly understands the union of the three core elements that power successful academies.

Bollettieri Invests in BOUNX
It started with a simple message from Coach Bollettieri - Make a platform for Coaches, not the front desk, because Coaches are the ones that deliver the impact. Check out our latest press release.

BRADENTON, FL, USA Feb. 4, 2022 –
BounxSport today announced the signing of a collaboration agreement and subsequent investment by legendary tennis coach Nick Bollettieri and long-time tennis academy management expert Steve Shulla to bring smarter coaching experiences through technology to clubs across the globe.

Julian R. Ellison, founder and CEO of BounxSport, said, “Coach Bollettieri was adamant from the start that the coach should be the foundation of a club management system — so that is what we built. We have been working together for over two years to ensure our BounxSport club management system, that we call Bounx, is a powerful tool for coaches to create a gamified experience for players and that clubs have the right tools to increase revenue.

”Bounx, a sports technology platform from BounxSport, integrates a coach app, a player app and a cloud-based club management system that manages player bookings, check-in and coach feedback that is powered by a complete financial transaction engine. Purpose built for private and group tennis classes, court bookings and club-run tournaments, Bounx has proven that by focusing on eliminating receivables and being efficient with player engagement, revenue per player increases.

“After piloting with sports clubs across the globe for the past two years, we are now ready for a full-market release with a truly unique, gamified club management platform that great coaches will naturally understand how to use and clubs can trust to run their business effortlessly,” Ellison said.

BounxSport took the best of Bollettieri’s insights and combined that with today’s technology to allow coaches “to provide feedback and badges to an individual or entire class in under 21 seconds — right on court,” Ellison said.

Bollettieri said the platform simplifies back-office work for tennis coaches. “We have seen their technology take shape and they have created something very simple, but powerful for tennis coaches to increase engagement, effectiveness and, most importantly, revenue,” he said. “Learning to play quality tennis takes a lot of hard work. Bounx helps make the hard work a little easier and fun for players while helping clubs manage their revenues.

”Steve Shulla, former manager of the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy said, “Sometimes technology can go too far and lose sight of what matters most for clubs. Growing revenue is simple — players must enjoy their time on court and desire to come back for more coaching. Bounx turned the traditional club management system model upside down by putting the coach at the core instead of the front desk computer.

”As part of the Bounx and Bollettieri collaboration, Bollettieri and Shulla will take an equity stake in the company and provide ongoing counsel, bringing more than 65 years of coaching experience to the sports technology company.
