Tennis South Africa (TSA), as part of its ongoing programme of transformation,  recognises its responsibility to provide a framework within which issues relating to discrimination (as referred to in the Charter Commitment reproduced elsewhere on this portal) can be ventilated to effect profound and radical change that orientates TSA in a new direction and takes it to a higher level of effectiveness.

In keeping with the values enshrined in the Equality Clause of the Bill of Rights of the South African Constitution, TSA will ensure that no player, coach, administrator, or other person under the jurisdiction of TSA, is unfairly discriminated against on the basis of race, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, marital status, family responsibility, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, HIV status, conscience, belief, political opinion, culture, language or birth.  It shall not be deemed unfair discrimination when affirmative measures are taken and implemented which are consistent with the Transformation Policy of TSA.

 The objective of this process is:

The purpose of the TIP is therefore to help us understand our members’ experiences and challenges by providing a valuable opportunity for reflection and learning, while focusing on players’ wellbeing and supporting players to remain engaged in the sport.

It is important to note that this is not a platform for the resolution of complaints, or the imposition of penalties or other sanctions.  However, should you wish to refer your issue for full investigation and resolution, you will be required to provide your full names and contact details.  Such issues will be referred to the TSA Disciplinary Process for investigation and resolution.

Members can now submit issues through our online form available here and they can do so anonymously.

All submitted issues will be kept strictly confidential.
