Planet Sport serves up Tennis365.com
Tennis fans and punters have a new destination online for non-stop coverage, as the Planet Sport network expands to boost mainstream tennis coverage outside of the Grand Slams.
Tennis365.com was conceived to deliver true tennis fans with year-round news, scores,entertainment and useful betting information.
The site joins Planet Sport Publishing’s growing sports media digital network of 6m monthly unique users that includes award-winning Football365, TEAMtalk, PlanetRugby and PlanetF1.
Launching on web, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and shortly on BBM, Tennis365.com will offer fast live scores, breaking news, betting previews, features, quizzes and video news.
Tennis365.com writer Kevin Palmer has already interviewed Boris Becker and Andre Agassi and will be speaking to a wide range of people involved in the game, on and off court.
Tennis tipsters will give punters information to beat the bookmakers, while the comprehensive live score centre will allow them to track their bets.
Planet Sport Managing Director Tim Satchell said tennis was under-represented by traditional sports media “so we see it as a real opportunity”.
“Tennis is the third biggest sport by turnover for digital wagering due to the growth of in-play bets and yet most sports betting advice focuses on football and racing.
“When the Australian Open is over and tennis falls out of view, Tennis365 will continue covering ATP, WTA and ITF tennis with daily news, features, betting advice and game-by-game updates.”
