In June 2009, Tennis Australia endorsed the Code of Behaviour which is governs the behaviour of players and spectators across Australia competing in Weekly Competitions as well as the Optus Junior Tour and the Australian Money Tournaments.
The Code of Behaviour creates the framework for dealing with tournament related breaches of discipline by players, coaches, parents/guardians and spectators who participate or attend sanctioned tournaments across Australia.
The document ensures that the integrity of tennis is kept at a high and also ensures the safety and wellbeing of other patrons at tournaments. It is important that a person who participates or attends a sanctioned tournament is well aware of the Code of Behaviour and the penalty system that is in place should a breach of the code be done.
In May 2013 the Code of Behaviour was updated to include an all important Spectator Clause.
