ITF Player Identification Number (IPIN):

All players entering ITF or Tennis Europe tournaments must register with the ITF and get an IPIN. Membership is valid for 12 months so make sure it is up to date before entering a tournament.

You must use the same name as in your Tennis Ireland profile (including spaces and ‘) so your details are linked to the WTN profile that has your Irish tournaments.

When you register for IPIN membership you will receive a unique IPIN, which will remain the same throughout your career playing in ITF or Tennis Europe tournaments.

The IPIN online service provides ITF calendar information, instant tournament entry and withdrawal, online payments, entry status and tournament schedules 24 hours a day and 365 days.

Davis Cup

The Davis Cup is the top annual men’s international team competition in tennis. Ireland first played in 1923 and has participated 92 years between then and 2023.

The best performance was in 1983 when the Irish team played in the World Group losing to the USA 3 –1, after John McEnroe won two singles points against Sean Sorensen and Matt Doyle and John McEnroe/Peter Flemming beat Sean Sorensen/Matt Doyle to win the third point. The Irish point came from a win in the second rubber: Matt Doyle vs Eliot Teltscher.
