Tennis’s governing bodies on 27 January 2016 constituted the Adam Lewis headed Independent Review Panel (IRP) to safeguard integrity in tennis.

An announcement in this regard was made by the Chairmen and CEOs of the Governing Bodies of International Tennis – Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), Women's Tennis Association (WTA), International Tennis Federation (ITF) and the Grand Slam Board.

The IRP was formed to review the functioning of the existing anti-corruption mechanisms and suggest measures to further safeguard the integrity of the game.

The panel will review and report on the appropriateness and effectiveness of the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP) and suggest recommendations for change.

It will also address issues including

• How the Tennis integrity Unit (TIU) can be more transparent without compromising the TIU’s need for investigative confidentiality
• Additional resources for the TIU both within the unit and at tournaments
• Structural and/or governance changes that enhance the independence of the TIU
• How to extend the scope and reach of the tennis integrity education program

Background

The panel was formed against the backdrop of reports on corruption allegations in the international tennis arena by the BBC and Buzzfeed News. The reports surfaced in the third week of January 2015 before the begging of the Australian Open grand slam tournament.

The reports further criticized the effectiveness of the TIU in dealing with the reported corruption instances.
