Tennis South Africa believes transformation will grow the sport

Tennis SA events director Ridhwaan Dawood, board member, Ronnie Van 't Hof, and CEO of Tennis SA, Richard Glover at the recent media briefing.


Tennis South Africa has signalled a new dawn for the future of tennis in South Africa with a renewed commitment to transformation in the sport.

This commitment was cemented by the federation signing a memorandum of agreement on transformation, with Sport and Recreation South Africa (SRSA) and the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc).

The agreement focuses on the interventions, via its transformation and development plan, that TSA will be making over the next five to eight years to drive growth in tennis across all communities.

By joining the ranks of the country’s leading sporting codes such as soccer, rugby, cricket, athletics and netball – who have signed similar agreements – TSA views the MOA as one of the key ingredients in broadening its reach across the country.

Prior to signing the agreement TSA had already hit the ground running by making its draft plan on transformation and development available online for public comment and feedback.

Richard Glover, CEO of TSA welcomed the signature of this agreement. “TSA is excited to finalise this agreement. It provides us with a great opportunity to work with SRSA and Sascoc to grow our sport.

“The new TSA plan for transformation and development is practical and achievable and has been very well received by a variety of stakeholders.

“We are excited to start rolling it out in the coming months. We see this new plan as an exciting opportunity to ensure the sustainability of tennis in our country.”

This symbolic step follows the presentation that TSA made to a media contingent in February, where the federation outlined a four-pronged approach to growing tennis in SA.
