Inside the secret world of tennis court-siding.
Brad Hutchins has been living a young bloke's dream: getting paid to travel the world and watch sport. Sitting court-side on the pro tennis circuit, he uses his phone to transmit results to a gambling syndicate, taking advantage of the time delay in TV broadcasts to beat other online punters to the big pay-offs. His stories from life on the road capture the adventures and mishaps that come with following the world's best tennis players and partying in a new country every week.
But like card counters in casinos, court-siders are despised by the tennis establishment. The more time Brad spends at tournaments, the harder it becomes for him to evade the security guards who are hell-bent on ejecting him from matches. The resulting cat-and-mouse chases will appeal to anyone who loves the roguish spirit of The Wolf of Wall Street or Catch Me If You Can.
