Following approval from the ITF Board of Directors ITF Vets will be re-branded as ITF Seniors.

The ITF Seniors Committee feel that ITF Seniors is a more international term and will enable the ITF to better promote, market and develop the very popular area of Seniors Tennis throughout the world.

The terms Seniors and Super-Seniors will be used to distinguish the split in age groups 35 – 55 and 60 – 85 respectively.

With immediate effect the following titles will be used:

ITF Seniors Committee
ITF Seniors Department
ITF Seniors Circuit
ITF Seniors World Individual Championships
ITF Seniors World Team Championships
ITF Super-Seniors World Individual Championships
ITF Super-Seniors World Team Championships

Anil Khanna, Chairman of the ITF Seniors Committee sees the change as a very positive and forward-thinking move by the ITF:

‘I am delighter with this initiative which aims to re-brand all areas in Seniors tennis. We believe the new terms ‘ Seniors and Super-Seniors will make our annual Team and Individual championships easier to understand and will enhance our opportunities for sponsorship success on all continents.’

The popular website www.itftennis.com/vets launched at the beginning of 2004 will also get a name change, becoming www.itftennis.com/seniors.

Any enquiries regarding the re-branding can be sent to seniors@itftennis.com.
