Russia and Belarus Suspended from Membership and International Team Competitions

The International Tennis Federation (ITF) and Tennis Europe have both issued releases condemning Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the supporting role played by Belarus.

 

In addition to the cancellation of all ITF/TE events in those countries, both the Russian Tennis Federation (RTF) and Belarus Tennis Federation (BTF) have been suspended from membership, and from participation in any activities or team competitions until further notice.

 

Tennis Ireland fully supports the actions and position taken by the ITF and TE and offers our unconditional support to the Ukraine Tennis Federation and to the people of Ukraine.
