Fair Play | Tennis in Britain

Fair Play

Fair Play is an essential value in tennis. We are committed to ensuring that tennis is played in a fair, open and inclusive nature at all levels.

Just as relevant in a fun game with friends as it is in a Grand Slam or major tennis tournament, Fair Play includes:

  • Good sportsmanship, honesty and respect whether you win or lose
  • Learning to challenge yourself and improve social skills
  • Taking responsibility for your actions, calling scores and lines clearly and fairly even if it costs you the point
  • Learning and following the rules and being a role model to younger people
  • Enjoyment of the sport

It is important for everyone to uphold Fair Play both on and off court whether it be players, parents, coaches, officials or volunteers.

Parent Advisory Group

This year we set up the British Tennis Parent Advisory Group comprising of representatives from across Great Britain with a range of experiences of tennis. The group is helping us shape British Tennis as a sport of choice for children; helping us attract new families to tennis; and to better inform and support parents.

If you have any questions or for more information, you can email us at safeandinclusive@lta.org.uk

Keep an eye out in 2017 for further Fair Play updates!
