Tennis Integrity Unit. The Tennis Integrity Unit was the organisation responsible for investigating match fixing in tennis since 2008 until 2020. It was replaced by the International Tennis Integrity Agency. It had the ability to impose fines and sanctions, and ban players, umpires, and other tennis officials from participating in tournaments.
A predecessor to the worldwide Tennis Integrity Unit, the TAACC was the first of its kind in tennis worldwide and professional sport in Australia. In her 15 years at Tennis Australia, Ms West always focussed on developing and implementing a uniform national approach to integrity and compliance issues and has been responsible for the creation of both the Tennis Australia Anti-Doping Policy and Member Protection policies.
