Summarize this article for a 10 years old


Courtsiding is the practice of transmitting information from sporting events for the purpose of gambling, or of placing bets directly from a sporting event. It has been observed as occurring most prominently, although not exclusively, in tennis. It arises as a result of the delay and latency between the actual venue and digital or satellite transmission of the event via television or IPTV broadcasting. The latter mode of delivery is specifically exploited, as most of the courtsided matches are low-to-unseeded tennis matches of no interest to a television network or viewers, and often receive only Internet distribution with a minimum (often unattended and automated) television camera setup.
