What is 135 Cam?

Also available from October, 2022, the 135 Tennis Analytics Camera and mount will be  affordable and purpose built for tennis. The customised mount will make it easy to hang on the fence, and is light enough to carry anywhere.


Upload from 135 Cam to 135 Analysis and you will have one of the most powerful tools available to improve the game of any player.

What is "Remote Matches"?

Remote Matches will allow mum, dad or whoever you like to link their memberships and have live and dynamic updates communicated in-app from anywhere in the world, to anywhere in the world. Live and dynamic.


To date, Remote Matches has only been available in app between two members. With the addition of 135 Analysis in early October, Remote Matches will become a web-based product.


Being web-based will enable us to create a RM only membership, which will be significantly cheaper than a standard membership.


Look out for more details coming soon. For now, Remote Matches is only available between two standard users in-app.

Downloading the 135 App and Setting Up

How to download the 135 App to your device

The 135 App is available on both the App Store and Play Store. Tap one of the images or scan the QR code to download.


How to load and save new players

1. Tap the menu button located at top left. Note: the menu button is not visible when in a match. Tap the “Back” button to exit your match. Data will be saved automatically and you can return to the match at any time.

2. Tap Players.

3. Tap Add at top right of screen.

4. Add all the details of the player and tap Save.

A player can also be added from the Add Match screen by tapping Add Player at top right.

The newly added player will appear in your player list, which can be accessed from the Main Menu.

How to record a match

1. Access the Matches screen from the Main Menu and tap Add.

2. Enter the information required and tap Save.

3. Establish which of the players is serving first

4. Make sure you have the “Record Rally Length” button checked and tap Start Match.

The “Who is serving first?” screen also contains a field to invite Remote Users to view the match. “Remote Matches” will be available from 27th July.

How to load a scoring format not included in the default list

Tap the menu at top of screen when not in a match or match stats. Tap Settings then tap Match Formats.


A few notes on adding formats:


1. Number of sets should be the maximum number that will be played. A “best of 3 set match” should have the number 3 in the first field.


2. Games per set is a little like “First to”. If it’s a regular set it’s first to 6. 135 will assume a 2 game advantage is required to win the set. So, if you load number of games in a set as 10, 135 will assume 11-9 is a winning score.


3. If there’s a match tiebreaker, the number of sets before match tiebreaker will either be 2 or 4.


4. Number of points in a match tiebreaker or set tiebreaker is another “First to” field. 135 will automatically assume a margin of 2 points is required to win a tiebreak.


5. Sudden Death Deuce is “No Ad” scoring.


Don’t forget to give your new format a name and a description so you know what to tap next time you use the same format.

Recording Matches Using the 135 App

What to do if you make a mistake

Tap the undo button above the + button next to the score. Use this button once you have completed a point ie if you have already recorded a fault, record a double fault and then tap the undo button.


This will amend the score to the previously displayed score and remove any stats associated with the point that’s been undone.


Tapping the undo button repeatedly will remove your data point by point. Be aware, there’s no “redo” button.

What to do when one or more points are missed

Use the + buttons beside each player to advance the score.

Whether you missed a point, had to step away for a few points, or made it to the match a couple of games late, you can still catch up and record the stats of the rest of the match.

The + buttons advance a player’s score by one point with every tap. Tapping either of them will advance the score using normal tennis scoring without anything being added to the stats for the match (except Rally Length if you wish).

The + buttons can also be used if you don’t feel comfortable loading full analytics for a player but want to start out with Rally Length. You will still be asked for the length of the rally when you tap a +. If you don’t know, just tap Unknown.

How to take notes during a match

Use the Pencil icon at the top right of screen. This will open a text box where you can enter any text you like.


Any notes you take will be shown inside the Point Count display which can be viewed by tapping the Point Count Magnifier icon on the Stats screen.


Any text you enter in this field will also be sent to your Remote Users LIVE during a match. Just in case you want to tell them there’s an injury time out, or any other point of interest.

How to tell the difference between forced and unforced errors

Whether a point ended with a Forced or Unforced Error is subjective. In junior tennis, if you think it’s a 50/50 call, err on the side of giving one or other player a Forced Error rather than an Unforced Error.


For more information on the differences between Winners, Forced Errors and Unforced Errors, have a look here.

How should lets and net cords be recorded

Lets are not recorded as part of a player’s analytics, largely because the point starts again from first or second serve.


A net cord that results in a player winning a point because the ball just dropped over the net after hitting the tape? That has to be recorded as a winner. A lucky winner, yes, but a winner nonetheless.


If a net cord results in a ball going long (particularly on serve) or wide, we recommend recording the location of the error (or serve) as a “Net” error.

What happens if the players get the person serving wrong?

Junior tennis players are inclined to get a few things wrong from time to time. One of the common mistakes is who is serving in a tiebreak and who serves to start the second set after a first set tiebreak.


Without going in to the “who does what and when”, we’ve made it easy for app users to swap the server if the junior players get it wrong.


The arrows in between the servers will ONLY appear at the start of a set and throughout any tiebreak, just in case they get it wrong on court. 

Viewing Analytics in the 135 App

Viewing Match Analytics recorded with the 135 App

Go to the Matches screen via the Menu and tap on the match you want to view. The Match Stats Summary screen will display the final score and a summary graph.

If you tap View Match Statistics, the 135 App will display all the analytics of that match in numerical form. Tap any of the graph icons to display analytics for that particular metric in graph form.

Viewing match analytics during a match

You can view match analytics at any time. From the Serve/Return screen, tap the icon at top right next to the pencil icon. Navigate through stats and graphs from there as if the match was completed.

What does the scroller do?

The 135 App scroller can be found in any of the graph screens. It allows you to view the analytics of a match from any game score.


Just move the start scroller to your desired start point and the end scroller to the desired end point. View analytics from an individual game if you like.


Using the scroller is excellent in circumstances where you want to know more than just individual match or set analytics.


If a player goes to a 4-1 lead but loses the set 6-4, use the scroller to view the analytics from start to 4-1. Then move the scroller again to 4-1 start to the end of the first set.

How to send a Match Report to your coach.

You can do this via the “Send to Coach” button. In fact, you can send the match stats and graphs to anyone, including yourself.


You’ll find the Send to Coach button on the Stats screen. Tapping it will generate a PDF document with all match analytics and graphs as you see them in-app.
