The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) today confirms that French tennis player Maxence Broville has been provisionally suspended from the sport, pending the full consideration of Tennis Anti-Corruption Program (TACP) charges.
Since 20 June 2023, the player has been prohibited from competing in or attending any sanctioned tennis events organised by the governing bodies of the sport.
The provisional suspension was imposed under Sections F.3.b.i.1 and F.3.b.i.4 of the TACP.
‘The Covered Person has failed to comply with a Demand.’
‘There is a likelihood that the Covered Person has committed a Major Offense and in the absence of a Provisional Suspension, the integrity of tennis would be undermined and the harm resulting from the absence of a Provisional Suspension outweighs the Hardship of the Provisional Suspension on the Covered Person.’
The player appealed against the imposition of the provisional suspension, but their appeal was dismissed by an independent Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer on 5 September 2023.
The ITIA is an independent body established by the Governing Bodies of Tennis to promote, encourage, enhance and safeguard the integrity of professional tennis worldwide.
