Disciplinary Code

Complaint, Objection & Disciplinary Rules and Procedures

I am very pleased to enclose a copy of the new Complaint, Objection & Disciplinary Rules and Procedures for Irish tennis as approved by the Board of Tennis Ireland on the 22 nd October 2010. These Rules and Procedures replace any earlier Disciplinary Rules and Procedures in use in the sport of tennis.

I wish to highlight some of the key aspects of these new Disciplinary Rules and Procedures:

  • These Disciplinary Rules and Procedures are binding upon Provincial Branches, Affiliated organisations, all Members and all Individual Associates in accordance with Article (31b) of the Articles of Association of Tennis Ireland Ltd.
  • The date of implementation of these Disciplinary Rules and Procedures is the 1st January 2011.
  • It will be necessary for the Provincial Branches, Affiliated organisations and all Members of Tennis Ireland Ltd to incorporate these Disciplinary Rules and Procedures into their respective Constitutions and Rules at the earliest possible date.
  • I would wish to draw your particular attention to the introduction of Just Sport Ireland (“JSI”) and Sports Resolution UK (SRUK) arbitration in dispute resolution in tennis as outlined on page 4 of these Disciplinary Rules and Procedures.

JSI  is an independent dispute resolution service for Irish Sport  and SRUK in Northern Ireland offering both a mediation and arbitration facility. JSI (SRUK) aims to provide a fair, impartial and efficient resolution of sporting disputes thus helping to ensure justice and fairness in sport. The arbitration services offered by JSI (SRUK) provide a favorable alternative to expensive and protracted court actions in the resolution of sporting disputes.

Tennis Ireland staff will be happy to provide any assistance you may require in implementing these new Disciplinary Rules and Procedures.
