The United States Tennis Association (USTA) is committed to making every tennis experience an enjoyable and memorable one. To do so we rely on the thousands of dedicated volunteers, coaches, officials, members, independent contractors, and consultants who contribute in their way to each event or program. Safe Play embodies the USTA’s commitment to respect and safety for every individual participating in a USTA event or program through the use of screening, education and reporting tools. The USTA expects individuals to adhere to Safe Play policies and standards, as well as all other USTA policies, procedures, and practices and applicable external laws and regulations.
The USTA asks that anyone with credible information (first-hand knowledge or reliable information from a knowledgeable third party) report misconduct, maltreatment, or behavior that conflicts with USTA Safe Play.
The USTA has contracted with NAVEX Global, an independent service provider specializing in secure and anonymous reporting hotline services. The services provided by NAVEX Global enable you to report a suspected violation of a policy via the NAVEX Global phone service or web site with an option to report anonymously. NAVEX Global will forward your report to the persons in our organization responsible for handling the report, who will do so in a discreet and confidential manner.
While the USTA recognizes how difficult it may be to report an allegation of misconduct, we strongly encourage individuals to include their contact information when making a report. Should you need to contact someone immediately or have questions on how to report, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maliciously or vindictively making a report of misconduct is prohibited and may violate state and federal criminal laws as well as civil defamation laws as well as any sanctions issued by the USTA. We take all reports about misconduct and maltreatment matters seriously and will look into each report and follow up when further action is appropriate.
You may use either of the following two methods to submit a report:
After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After 5-6 business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.
