TSA update Code of Conduct


Tennis South Africa is looking to clamp down on the Code of Conduct as in many cases there are behavioral aspects at tournaments that are simply not making the environment conducive for players to participate in a fair and fun environment. We accept there is a competitive nature, but this must still be controlled and done within the reasonable boundaries of the game and the code of conduct.
TSA’s primary concern is the well-being of our participants. In so doing TSA would like to strive to ensure that the environment in which tournaments are played are positive and not toxic, as seems to have been the case over the last couple of months.
We feel that it is important to say that we all have a responsibility towards ensuring that the tournaments can be run in an acceptable manner, without emotional involvement, animosity towards players, coaches and parents. In fact, it is all of us as a collective that determines whether the environment in which our children play is fair or toxic.
It is for this reason that TSA would like to remind all parties concerned about the importance of fair play and the Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct is not there to punish players. It is a mechanism to be used by officials to ensure that acceptable standards are maintained both on and off the court by all stakeholders.
