"Thanks for putting together such an awesome product. I had no trading experience prior to purchasing the course and now I am making an average of £500 per month and loving it. I would highly recommend this course." - Luke Paull




***I work with you from day 1 to speed up your learning and I guarantee you will  not find better customer service either online or offline!

My background before getting into trading was highly focused on training /coaching so I am better able to improve your understanding than most ***

Work with me!

Members only In Play Chatroom where we share tips and advice.

"This chat is worth the £29 on its own!" is a common message I get.


ďPaul really knows his stuff  - thereís no waffle or empty promises, just good direct trading advice (what do you expect from a Yorkshireman?) that you know comes from an expert, but is easy to follow." - Dylan Younger


If you're looking for a product/service that takes your money and leaves you to get on with learning on your own then you've come to the wrong place.

If you want a service that takes you through those tough early learning months and doesn't think that any of your questions are stupid ones then this is where you need to be!

I don't just sell you a Guide and I won't try to "blind you with science". Other services will try to trick you with fancy words and "magical" statistics.

Trading tennis is about common sense and hard work. I work with you for as long as you need to develop your trading. There is also a members' in play chatroom which many people find useful as we have a good mix of new guys (and a few new gals!) and experienced traders. It is a very friendly group who all try to help each other with tips and ideas.

If you have any questions please email me at 

Please read on for more detailed information.


"The website has loads of strategies and videos. A great introduction to tennis trading. Paul is always ready to answer queries or questions and give advice. Customer service excellent." - Clive Holland

So youíve discovered Betfair and youíre looking for the right sport to trade?

Or maybe you already make a little money on Betfair but youíre looking for other markets?

This amazingly simple learning system is for you!


I stumbled across Betfair trading in around January 2008. I tried trading pre race horse races but was limited as to when I could trade that market. I have always loved tennis and used to play regularly when I was younger so I looked into ways of trading it. I now trade tennis fulltime.

The tennis season lasts about 11 months of the year with the off-season being throughout December. Every week there is at least 1 tournament from either the ATP Tour (Men) or the WTP Tour (women).

ALL ATP and WTP matches are In Play markets on Betfair. This means you can place back and lay bets during the game.

***The purpose of the Guide is to help you to learn how the markets move. The best way I have found to do this is to break trading down into simple strategies. By using  these strategies you wil become familiar with the tennis markets and be able to match your trading plan to the match situation***

All the information is delivered to you as a website. I have chosen to do things this way so it's easier for me to keep the site updated and also so that you don't have to pay for any updates as you do with normal ebooks!


"The Tradeshark trading guide is fantastic value in my opinion, I wish I'd discovered it much earlier. Totally recommended" - Laurence Coleman


Now if youíre looking for ways to trade tennis the chances are that, like me, you have Googled the subject to death! I spent literally weeks trawling the internet for strategies and ideas for trading this market. There are no end of "experts" telling us that the tennis markets are perfect for trading because the price swings are huge. They say that tennis trading is the most profitable for trading and it is incredibly easy to do.

What they DONíT tell us is HOW to trade it!

So I looked on the forums for the elusive answers. Time and time again I would see someone ask a simple question and all the forum members would throw their arms in the air and shout, "FISHING!!"  What they were saying was that it was very wrong of that person to be asking how to trade tennis.

 They have the secrets and they donít want you to know!

In the end I had no option other than to learn it for myself by trial and error. This was very frustrating and cost me a few trading banks.

Gradually I started to come up with ways of predicting which way a playerís price would move and how to profit from it.


The green figure under each player's name is the profit if that player wins the match.


During my quest for knowledge the frustration was intense. I wasted so much time trying to find out the basics. I could have been using that time to develop those ideas to suit me.

That is the reason for this site. Maybe I can save you a little time and also a little money by limiting losses!


"Tradeshark and his instructions were my starting steps into the world of tennis trading. There was not a question I could not ask him and not one of them was left unanswered. I will always be grateful for his patience and advice. He showed me what tennis trading was really all about. The experience and knowledge I acquired during long sessions in his chatroom are unparalleled!" - Marko Bukovnik

Beginner's Strategies

Included in my guide are two excitingly simple strategies that a beginner can use pretty much straight away. In these strategies I give you the exact point at which to enter a trade and the exact point to exit the trade. Also I have taken any decisions away from the novice trader with very basic, easy to follow instructions on what to do if the trade doesn't work the way we wanted. By following my very simple rules the risk to your trading bank is kept very small.

***the purpose of the beginner's strategies are to help  you to get involved with the markets and learn how they react to what is happening on  court. They are not intended to allow you to make a worthwhile income on their own***


I have shown these strategies to many novice tennis traders and they have all loved them!

"Well, when we talk about tennis trading we donít have any other serious options other than Paul from I have known Paul for a few years now and I have two words for him : serious and respectful. Anyone trying to start tennis trading would be wise investing a small amount to be a member on his site." - Marius, Romania



My guide to trading tennis on Betfair contains simple strategies that you can use to secure a profit regardless of who wins the match. If you're familiar with trading and "greening up" then you know what I am talking about. If it's new to you, you're in for a treat!


With each strategy I have included a video of me using the strategy so you can see how it works.



Something that is vital in any trading strategy is to know what to do when a  trade goes against you. Included in the guide is a step by step account of how I manage this exact situation. I have also included a video of me using my "Halfs and Doubles" strategy for when  a trade goes wrong.


Please be aware that I provide you with the information and strategies that you need to profit consistently from tennis trading. However you will need to put some work in yourself. This isn't a magic wand get rich quick system. To make good money consistently will take time and practice. To speed up that learning process you should make use of our free Trading Forum and Chatroom, especially during matches. I have laid down strict but basic rules that the experienced traders must help new traders. As a result we have a very friendly community with a good mix of new and experienced traders who are all willing to help


In addition to the strategies and tutorial videos you will gain access to the members area. Here, you will find daily match tips and advice on how to trade them. You can email me directly to request an overview or advice on an upcoming match. I will respond to all emails personally. 

You can also email me with any questions about Betfair trading in general. 

"Whether you're an experienced sportstrader or a complete novice it's an absolute no brainer to join Tradesharktennis, Paul is one of the very few good guys and certainly not simply another shovel seller, if he was he'd sell his services for a hell of a lot more than he does. The chat room alone is worth the lifetime subscription with its wealth of experienced tennis traders always on hand to offer help and advice to beginners, but this service offers much more than that with videos and strategies that will set you off on, or keep you on the right track." - Mike Coggan
