Tennis Pros Association Aligns with World Players Association

In a move that has brought excitement to the tennis community, the Professional Tennis Players Association (PTPA) has been accepted as a member organization by the World Players Association. This recognition came after an application process that included a review by the World Players Executive Committee and staff. As a global advocacy group for professional athlete unions and players associations, World Players represents over 85,000 players across almost 140 independent players associations in nearly 60 countries.

Ahmad Nassar, Executive Director of the PTPA, expressed his enthusiasm about the news, calling it validating for their organization. He believes that being part of World Players will provide opportunities for recognition and sharing of best practices within the network. The PTPA was launched in 2020 by Novak Djokovic and Vasek Pospisil and has grown to nearly 700 members, including the top 250 men’s and women’s singles players as well as the top 100 men’s and women’s doubles players.

The PTPA’s fight for tennis players aligns with broader movements of athletes advocating for issues such as equality for female athletes, fair pay, anti-doping reform, among others. Nassar emphasized that the principles of the PTPA resonate with struggles faced by athletes across various sports. Being formally recognized and actively participating in discussions with other players associations is seen as a significant milestone for the PTPA.
