Tennis demands confidence and self-belief to reach peak performance. The Positive Court Pledge acknowledges the need for a more open conversation to reduce stigma around struggles with mental health.

I pledge to make tennis safer and healthier for everyone, and to promote mental wellbeing and resilience.

Words matter, so I pledge to use them to inspire, support, respect and encourage tennis athletes.

I pledge to respect the rules of tennis, and be considerate to officials, organizers, and volunteers.

I pledge to model good conduct and character on and off the court to distinguish tennis as a sport that welcomes everyone.

For the love of tennis, sign the Pledge now!

what IS the positive court pledge?

The Pledge is a written promise from all those involved in Canadian tennis to create a supportive, safe and nurturing environment.

People are invited to sign it to express their support.


It’s for everyone involved in the world of tennis: those who set foot in a stadium, watch matches at home or interact with athletes online.

The Pledge is also intended for tennis associations, staff members, media, volunteers and many others.


The Positive Court Pledge aims to ensure that people from all walks of life can experience tennis in all its glory.

Tennis Canada intends to collect signatures from many individuals involved in the sport, all of whom are committed to creating a positive, supportive and healthy environment for tennis and its players to thrive.
