LTA Launches Upgraded Summer Tennis Events App
Once again, we have partnered with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) to develop this year’s British Tennis App. As the official statistics and information partner to the LTA, we are delighted to have played a part in bringing UK tennis fans all the action from this summer’s grass court tournaments via this exclusive App suitable for iPhone and Android devices.
The App is free to download and will provide live scores, results, breaking news, and the latest player images straight from the courts. In addition, users will be able to watch video from the three major events this summer – the AEGON Championships, the AEGON Classic, and the AEGON International and improved functionality this year means the App now includes live weather updates so that fans can plan their viewing.
Thomson Reuters’Global Tennis ambassador and former British No 1, Greg Rusedski will be giving round-ups and analysis of the action from the AEGON Championships, which will be uploaded every day throughout the week.
Robert Schukai, our Global Head of Mobile Technology said this about the updated App: “We have once again collaborated with the LTA to help develop the 2012 LTA Summer Events App, this truly is an App for real tennis fans in the UK. At Thomson Reuters we specialise in the exchange of information and so to be involved in creating an App which we feel really benefits fans of the game has been an extremely satisfying process for all parties involved.
“As the official Statistics and Information Partner to the LTA, Thomson Reuters is constantly striving to help tennis fans stay well informed throughout the summer of British tennis; this year’s App hosts the most relevant news, live scores, video and even live weather updates to help fans plan their tennis viewing either on site at a tournament or watching on television or online.”
To download the App for free, go to the Google Play or Apple App store and search “AEGON Tennis” or “LTA”. For more information on the App please click here.
