About Us

Intelligent Play was founded with a desire to solve some of the challenges faced by facility owners across the global sports industry.

We wanted to develop a technology like no other; an innovative technology for field management using artificial intelligence and machine learning.

We wanted this technology to make fields play better, play longer, play safer.

The first Intelligent Play field management system was installed in July 2017.

Player Safety

A well-maintained, quality field surface plays better and ensures consistent player safety

Before now, the status of a sports field after usage or maintenance came from what was seen, felt or perceived. The room for error was great and accuracy was low. With Intelligent Play, the use of artificial intelligence takes away the guesswork.

We wanted to develop a system that makes you more efficient in managing your sports field. We wanted to develop a system that helps you maintain optimum performance standards for your field for longer than ever before. We wanted to develop a system that gives you the true picture of what’s happening on your field and the impact it has.

We believe Intelligent Play delivers on this.
