In 2008, tennis was among the first sports to establish its own anti-corruption body. All ‘Covered Persons’ are bound by the Tennis Anti-Corruption Program, which gives TIU the right to interview and obtain, with consent, suspects’ phones, tablets, lap tops and financial records. Investigations are opened at any time, into any covered person. Offenders are subject to lifetime bans and fines up to US$250,000. In helping to prevent corruption, TIU works with the sport to make it as difficult as possible for would-be corruptors to access players and tournaments. Player education is critical. All players complete an online Tennis Integrity Protection Program which explains grooming techniques and the process of reporting corrupt approaches.
