TENNIS SOUTH AFRICA KEEP THEIR EYE ON THE BALL

Johannesburg, South Africa – TSA recently held a productive board meeting, where a number of important decisions were made, that will directly impact on many facets of the game in South Africa.

The board has approved the first draft of the transformation and development policy and charter, subject to feedback and consultation with key stakeholders. TSA have confirmed that both the charter and policy will be made available to the public through the official TSA website later this week, for review and comment.

The board has also agreed that TSA will enter both the 2018 Davis Cup and Fed Cup competitions. The TSA head office will consult with both the High Performance Task Force and the Women’s Tennis Task Force about the strategy for Fed Cup, however the Board’s collective view is that it should take a long term, developmental approach to the Fed Cup - with a focus on developing and preparing the next generation of female stars - especially those aged 18 and under. Meanwhile, the interview process (and timeline) for the selection of the new Fed Cup Captain will be communicated in due course.
The board has given TSA head office the go ahead to work through a number of potential changes to the 2018 tournament calendar - including, re-looking at the scheduling of Junior Tournaments, with a view to preventing the over-playing of our top junior players. This calendar project will include a process of consultation with Provinces and other key stakeholders.
The proposed new Selection Criteria Framework for the selection of junior national teams has also been approved by the board. The new Selection Criteria Framework comes into effect with immediate effect and is available for review on the TSA website. The board has also approved the new process (and criteria) for appointing a new Junior National Selectors panel.
Finally, the board has appointed a Task Force to finalise a new constitution for the Federation. The intention is to submit a new constitution, for ratification, at the 2017 Annual General Meeting (AGM) – which is provisionally scheduled to take place in September 2017.
