President's Fund to provide direct assistance to Member Nations

Delegates from 44 Tennis Europe member nations attended a Regional Meeting yesterday on the eve of the International Tennis Federation’s Annual General Meeting in Cancun, Mexico.

The meeting addressed a range of topics, including Sunday’s ITF Board and Presidential elections, the Davis Cup and the future of European tennis.  Regarding the current situation at Tennis Europe, the meeting was informed of recent successes, including record numbers of tournaments, new partnerships, the implementation of a new Code of Ethics and Constitution, and a stable financial situation.

Leading the meeting, Tennis Europe President Ivo Kaderka underlined the increased strength and unity of European tennis in recent years, and urged the delegates to continue to work together for the prosperity of the sport.

Mr. Kaderka also announced a boost for Tennis Europe’s President’s Fund, having personally secured sponsorship income destined to provide direct and immediate financial assistance to European national federations in need, with minimal administration. Member nations will receive further information on how to apply in due course.

Closing the meeting, Mr. Kaderka reiterated his long-term commitment to leading the European federation, pledging to work together with nations to create a plan for Tennis Europe for 2028 and beyond.
