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.
The Independent Review Panel 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. An Interim Report will be published and made public, followed by a period of consultation. A Final Report will follow when that consultation process has been completed. The Panel can be contacted via the website and at Tennis.IRP@crsblaw.com
A new TIU anti-corruption training program was introduced in March. Players will complete it every two years.
30 match alerts were received in first quarter of 2017, compared to 48 for same period in 2016.
