Use of computers and computer vision to detect and track players became the topic of interest of various research groups. Regardless of whether a custom set of static cameras is used or the images are acquired from directed TV coverage, player detection and tracking is a complex process. As a sport in general is popular and commercially potent area, commercial, quite expensive programs for analysis and track players in different environments have been developed. In this paper, after an overview of various methods presented in the literature, a proposal of a modular system for tracking indoor and outdoor team games using computer vision is given.
