Affiliation Procedure/ Steps 3469 Views

@ UAE Tennis Federation
The Concept of AFFILIATION:
An individual wishing to play the game regularly and enjoy the full benefits of Tennis becomes a member of a Tennis Institution: such as a Club, a private Academy, a Tennis Services Company or a Tennis Center or a programme.
  • To meet the expectations of its members a UAE Tennis Institution affiliates with the UAE Governing body of Tennis in the country which is The UAE Tennis Federation (TE).
  • The UAE Tennis Federation in turn affiliates is affiliated with:
  • The UAE Olympic Committee
  • The GCC Tennis organizing Committee (6 Federations)
  • The Arab Tennis Federation (22 Federations)
  • The Asian Tennis Federation (44 Federations)
  • The International Tennis Federation (209 Federations)
Through this tiered framework everyone playing the game is linked. It is through this framework that tennis as we know it has developed. Without this framework there would be no universally accepted rules for the game, standards of teaching and play would be lower and there would be no meaningful competition. Enthusiasm would decline and the game would languish and degenerate. Where the framework is incomplete because a structure is missing or ineffective, the game is underdeveloped.
