Tennis Scotland To Take Part In Social Media Boycott

• 1 MINUTE READ

This weekend, Tennis Scotland is standing in solidarity with the sporting community by participating in a social media boycott in opposition to the continued racist and discriminatory abuse aimed at those in sport on social channels. Our social media accounts will fall silent from Friday, 30th April at 3pm BST until 11.59pm BST on Monday, 3rd May.

There is no place for discrimination of any kind in our sport or elsewhere in society. Tennis Scotland is committed to ensuring our sport is open to everyone and we continue to strive to make it diverse and inclusive. Nobody should have to face online abuse and collectively we have a responsibility to stand against it.

Blane Dodds, CEO of Tennis Scotland, said: “Social media offers a place for people to connect and come together. However, we sadly see platforms being used by individuals as a means to abuse players, coaches, officials and other involved in sport.

“This kind of behaviour is completely unacceptable and we urge social media companies to do more to rid it from their platforms.

“We will stand together with sporting bodies across the United Kingdom by supporting the social media boycott.”
