Identifying events in sports video offers great potential for advancing visual sports coaching applications. In this paper, we present our results for detecting key events in a tennis match. Our overall goal is to automatically index a complete tennis match into all the main tennis events, so that a match can be recorded using affordable visual sens-ing equipment and then be automatically indexed into key events for retrieval and editing. The tennis events detected in this paper are a tennis game, a change of end and a tennis serve - all of which share temporal commonalities. There are of course other events in tennis which we aim to index in our overall indexing system, but this paper focuses solely on the aforementioned tennis events. This paper proposes a novel approach to detect key events in an instrumented tennis environment by analysing a players location and the visual features of a player.
