As the name suggests, court side betting is where an individual or team of people, attend sporting event for the purposes of betting ahead of the televised delay. Naturally, this gives them a huge advantage. Essentially, in most cases, court-siders are just hoovering up all the money left, after an event has happened.
Courtsiding is of course also more difficult in a sport like football where Betfair suspends the action when there is a goal, penalty or red card. In reality courtsiding may be more of an option in sports like golf where monitoring crowd activity isn’t so easy with people moving around all the time and action going on across multiple holes simultaneously.

Obviously they're not watching Sky sports but a very slight delay none the less of the time it takes for a goal to be scored and a signal (whatever that medium may be) to be sent.
The book itself is a well written good read and probably a fascinating one for anyone involved in Tennis Trading. I certainly enjoyed it but I assume it might be tricky to understand for someone who does not know Betfair. It follows the author over his 2 years as a courtside trader and many of the challenges and successes over that time.
Court siding / Live at the races / Live at the pitch side.
