The Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) is the anti-corruption body covering all professional tennis around the world. It is responsible for enforcing the sport’s zero-tolerance policy on betting-related corruption.
A new TIU App is now available for Apple and Android smartphones. Produced in six languages, it gives direct access to the player education program through the WTA and ATP Player zones and ITF IPIN accounts. Anti-corruption rules and tips are also included.
TIU staffing is being expanded with two new investigators and an education manager. Sarah Hamlet and Lacksley Harris have joined the London-based team as investigators. The education manager is a new role to expand the scope and frequency of the player and officials training program.
The Independent Review Panel was set up by the governing bodies of tennis to review all aspects of the sport’s anti-corruption protocols, structures and resources, has launched a website at www.tennisirp.com. The Panel expects to complete its Interim Report in the first quarter of 2017, which will be then followed by a period of consultation. A Final Report will be published when that consultation process has been completed. The Panel can be contacted via the Contact section of the website, via email at Tennis.IRP@crsblaw.com and phone: +44 (0)20 7203 5286
