From 2017 through to 2026, DAZN Group Limited (formerly Perform Group) and WTA Media own the global distribution rights to 51 tournaments on the Women’s Tennis Association calendar every season, with WTA Media now the host broadcaster at 27 of these tournaments.
In addition to the live production and commentary, DAZN (a subscription sports streaming service) is also responsible for the successful production and delivery of content from every single event.
The WTA’s broadcast strategy delivers unprecedented premium content to tennis fans worldwide. Its rights deal with Amazon gives the company’s Prime Video subscription service exclusive coverage of the world’s premier women’s tennis tour until the end of 2023.
Since 2017, I have provided live commentary on more than 100 tournaments, including the Premier Mandatories/Premier 5s (WTA 1000s) at Indian Wells, Miami, Rome and Cincinnati; the Premier (WTA 500) tournaments in Sydney, Charleston and Eastbourne; and the WTA International (WTA 250) events in Tokyo, Washington DC and Prague.
I have also worked on Tennis TV’s coverage of the men’s calendar’s nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments, including Miami, Shanghai and Rogers Cup (Canada).
In 2018, I commentated on the inaugural ATP Challenger Tour Loughborough Trophy for BBC Sport.
I also provide football commentary from Ligue 1 (France) and La Liga (Spain) for DAZN – a live sports streaming platform that provides users with unlimited access to live and on-demand sports content. DAZN were joint winners of the Best Sports Project award at the 2017 TV Sports Awards.
In July 2019 I commentated on a series of pre-season fixtures for Hogmore Media, an international media rights company that owns, manages, creates and distributes television, online and mobile media rights.
For UEFA.com – the official site of European football’s governing body – I provided live commentary for the worldwide feed of the Europa League via Deltatre Media UK Ltd, for UEFA subscription services. I also commentated on the UEFA Futsal Cup 2017 and UEFA Futsal Euro 2018.
And during the 2017/18 season I provided commentary for ITN Productions’ highlights content of The Football League’s competitions for use by domestic and international broadcasters, and the 72 EFL clubs (through their online Player service).
The Professional Darts Corporation’s European Tour events are streamed exclusively online throughout the year via PDCTV and Viaplay Xtra and I am on the commentary team.
The European Tour has visited venues in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Czech Republic, Austria, Hungary, Switzerland and Gibraltar.
Overall, a potential audience of over 300 million people has access to PDC tournaments to watch the best players in the world.
