Botswana Tennis Association: Player’s Code of Conduct Pledge


The Code is to provide a means of assisting the Botswana Tennis Association in identifying ethical conduct and to encourage those selected to participate in tennis tournaments to pursue appropriate conduct. The conduct and ethical behavior of a tennis player is determined by the degree of respect with which the player interacts with other players and the public that the player serves. The “public” is regarded as being the Parents, Officials, Coaches, Administrators and spectators
This code relates directly to the expectations that the Botswana Tennis Association has of tennis players. Failure to comply, will result in enforcement through disciplinary proceedings.
