This paper considers the statistics of local appearance based measures that are suitable for the visual parsing of sport events. The moments of the colour information are computed, and the shape content in the frames is characterised by the moments of local shape measures. Their generation process is very low cost. The temporal evolution of the features then is modelled with a Hidden Markov Model. The HMM is used to generate higher level information by classifying the shots as close ups, court views, crowd shots and so on. The paper illustrates how those simple features, coupled with the HMM, can be used for parsing snooker and tennis footages.
