  • The South African Tennis Association is the
    national tennis authority established in terms of
    a constitution. The Association is a registered
    Section 21 Company with Articles of Association.
  • The Association is made up of some fifteen
    (15) provincial associations, with 2 members from
    each province making up the Council. The Council
    elects members to the Board, who are accountable
    to the Council, but who have full executive and
    fiduciary responsibilities in terms of the
    Constitution.

  • The South African Government, through SRSA,
    the Sports Commission and the National Lotteries
    Board, have been very supportive in recent times,
    but it is clear to all concerned that the game
    cannot survive, let alone grow, without
    substantial funding, which will allow for growth
    in development and junior/ school/ club
    programmes, as well as efficient administration
    at all levels.

  • President Thabo Mbeki, in his address at a
  • Sponsors of Sport dinner said, The legacies of
  • apartheid and the social divisions it generated
  • has meant and still means that the ongoing
  • transformation of our countrys sport is not an
  • easy one. Divisions along the lines of race,
  • class and gender, entrenched under the
  • apartheid system, will take time to be ironed
  • out. The President went further to say that,
  • We must continue to focus on infrastructure,
  • building programmes in underdeveloped
  • areas

  • Sports disciplines that have been sidelined and
  • given Cinderella status must be brought in from
  • the cold and receive sponsorship....For this is a
  • crucial step towards nation building, that is
  • necessary for our moving forward as a
  • people.
  • According to the former South African Sports
  • Commission, a survey done in 2000 revealed that
  • sport and recreation contributed some 2, in
  • 1997, towards the GDP of the country and
  • provided well over 50 000 jobs.
  • 5

  • Mr. Mbeki added, The continuous raising of
  • the profile of sport, particularly amongst
  • decision makers both in the country and
  • internationally, through communicating key
  • and strategic sporting related plans,
  • programmes, sponsorships and
  • achievements, is paramount for ensuring
  • that sport continues to play its rightful
  • developmental role in the country. Currently
  • tennis is seen as one of the Cinderella sports.

The most recent statistics still place tennis at
No. 6 in South African adult participation, out
of more than 80 sporting codes and 5th in the
junior circles. According to the BMI report,
nearly 1.2 million adults play either socially or
on a competitive basis. . The development of
the game in the PDI areas is, understandably,
foremost in SATAs plans and is essential in
revitalizing the game in our country. 9
10
At tournament level, the number of entries of PDI
youngsters is poor, due to transport and
affordability. Provincial structures are unable
to assist due to cash flow restraints. This has,
unfortunately, left SATA with an unacceptable
participation rate of 6 from the PDI
communities, in SATAs national and regional
tournaments. 10
11
  • The schools from PDI areas also do not
    participate in the suburban school leagues,
    because of transport and affordability
    restrictions.
  • Teachers often do not have their own vehicles and
    public transport becomes expensive.
  • The emphasis must be on mass participation, with
    the exceptionally talented individuals identified
    at an early age and developed into international
    stars.

TENNIS AS A PARTICIPATION SPORT

LEVEL OF PARTICIPATION
  • To the Department of Sport, codes must be able to
    justify the number of participants formally
    registered with that code. (Financial
    contributions are at stake).
  • This represents a major problem to many codes, as
    often very few club members are formally
    licensed.
  • The same applies to a sport like tennis, which
    has one of the highest social components of all
    sports.
  • While Tennis itself presents a formal licensed
    figure of about 15 000 to the Dept, the real
    figure for people playing at clubs is much
    higher. BMI Adult Sporttrack has it at about 300
    000 players, and this has been consistently
    confirmed by our year on year samples.

SUMMARY OF TENNIS PARTICIPATION
  • Tennis is a sport truly representative of all
    population groups, for both adult 44 black, 45
    white participants as well as junior 50
    black, 25 white, 19 coloured participants.
  • There is also a nice spread amongst all age
    groups, with however a slight youth bias 64 of
    adult participants aged 18-34 years. Amongst all
    participants, 40 are juniors aged between 13-18
    years.
  • Biased towards the higher LSM groups with
    approximately 60 of all adult participants
    falling within LSM 7-10.
  • Well representative of both genders with a small
    female bias amongst adults 55. Amongst
    juniors, the female bias rises to 59.
  • Tennis is the sixth most popular sport
    participated in amongst all adults and ranks 5th
    amongst juniors.
  • Tennis ranks third overall amongst women and
    seventh overall amongst men.
  • Amongst juniors aged 13-18, tennis ranks 5th
    overall in terms of the most participated-in
    sports at school
  • 16

17
TENNIS AS A SPECTATOR SPORT
  • Consistently one of the top ten most popular
    adult and junior spectator sports amongst all
    population groups.
  • Very representative of all adult population
    groups with 50 Black, 25 White and the balance
    of 25 distributed amongst the Coloured and Asian
    markets.
  • Overall amongst adults, tennis ranks 6th 4th
    amongst whites and 6th amongst blacks. Amongst
    juniors tennis ranks 5th overall
  • Slight female bias 55 amongst adult spectators
  • 17

18
TENNIS SPECTATORS BY LSM PROFILE
  • Nice distribution amongst all LSM groups with
    more than 50 falling within the LSM 1-6 bracket,
    but only 15 within LSM 1-4.
  • Given that more than 99 of the total 2003
    Televised coverage of tennis was aired on DSTV/
    SuperSport, continued growth amongst the PDI
    market will become an ongoing challenge
  • Note In 2003 there was only approximately 8
    hours of coverage on SABC eTV combined. (i.e.
    ARs therefore become fairly meaningless).

  • The South African Tennis Development
    Programme, in the PDI areas, is currently funded
    by revenue from SRSA. It is extremely difficult
    to find corporate sponsorship for this facet of
    tennis and growth is therefore hampered. We have
    programmes in the above listed areas, but the
    sustainability is not secure, as we cannot pay
    the coaches that give of their time to coach
    these youngsters.
  • 21

22
In the suburban areas, coaches are able to earn a
living from coaching, whereas in the PDI areas,
the communities are unable to afford these
payments. Each day, trained PDI coaches conduct
clinics in these areas, with the promising
talented players moving on to provincial
squads. 22
23
Unfortunately, unlike many other sports, tennis
is an individual sport that requires personal
attention to each player. We appeal to the
government to kindly assist with additional
funding, which will enable SATA to take the game
to many other parts of the country on a
sustainable basis. 23

  • SATA lacks funds to enable it to really produce
    stars for the future. Most major corporates in
    South Africa are already aligned to the big
    sports, viz. Soccer, Rugby, Cricket. It is an
    ongoing struggle to get sponsors to partner the
    lesser sporting codes.
  • At grassroots and junior level, we urge the
    government and National Lotteries Board to
    largely assist the lesser funded sports, to
    enable them to catapult the careers of the
    juniors, from a larger and far stronger entry
    level base. Once they are equipped with the
    necessary coaching etc. they will be able to
    compete on the international circuits. One only
    has to look at the government funding policies of
    countries like Australia, Argentina and Spain, to
    witness what government funding has meant to
    their sports. PMG note pictures not include

1.5 million spectators.
