Implementing facial recognition systems in the accesses of a sports club is a way to advance technologically and improve the user experience. This allows faster and more convenient access, avoiding the need to carry a card or a physical device.
Club Tennis Sabadell, one of the leading clubs in Catalonia, both for the quality of the facilities and the number of courts, has opted for digitizing its accesses, implementing the Veridas facial recognition system, installing 7 biometric access terminals, 3 inside and 4 outside.
This innovative access system has enabled more than 2,200 club members to enjoy this new way of accessing the club, making the experience faster, more comfortable, and safer without the need to carry their membership cards.
The challenge: Improve the access experience and increase the security of the Club
Members of the Club have access to its facilities through their membership cards. However, these access credentials can be lost or forgotten, and they are effortless to give away, and any non-member can sneak in. Access via physical badges often leads to queues and slower entry to the Club.
Rigorous access control is essential for the Club to ensure the security of the Club. However, the current access system makes it difficult to authenticate with the utmost confidence whether the people entering are cardholders and entitled to do so.
For this reason, the Sabadell Tennis Club has the opportunity to improve the access experience of its members and to continue advancing in the digital transformation of its facilities, opting for a facial biometric system as a more secure and faster access system.
The solution: An access management system with facial biometrics
Veridas offers an identity verification and access management platform that allows members of the Club Tennis Sabadell to access only with their face; quickly, comfortably and securely, without the need to carry a physical card.
This biometric access system eliminates the transfer and loss of physical credentials, identifying non-members and blocking their access. In addition, the solution makes it possible to control its member’ capacity and entry traceability, increasing the level of security of the facilities without affecting the comfort of the users.

For members to gain access through facial recognition, they need to consent to the Club to be immediately registered in the system using their photo stored in its database.
Once registered, the member can enter and leave the facilities simply by being who they are, with their face, in less than 1 second, without the need to carry any physical credential.
Result: Digital transformation and the best access experience for partners
Since May 2022, El Club Tennis Sabadell has improved the access experience of its more than 2,200 members. Now they enjoy a faster access experience to its facilities due to the reduction of queues, and they are more comfortable as they are not obliged to carry their membership card with them.
