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.
In a move towards greater transparency of its operations the TIU will, for the first time, publish the detailed disciplinary decisions produced by its panel of independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officers. These contain the details of the charges laid, the representations made by the TIU and the accused party, the reasons for the decision and the sanction imposed. The first decision published was for the suspension and fine of Spanish player Samuel Ribeiro Navarrete
Matthew Perry has joined the TIU as Education and Training Manager, bringing with him experience gained from a background in teaching and elite sports anti-doping education. He will be responsible for managing and extending the scope and reach of anti-corruption training and education across the sport, which includes a mandatory online training module which has been completed by over 30,000 players, officials and administrators.
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.
