A reminder to everyone that new applications for ITWA membership should be submitted by Friday, August 12, 2016. Please send applications to ITWA administrative secretary Sophie Boussenac at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any regular tennis writer who covers three Grand Slams and a total of fifteen tournaments (i.e. ATP and WTA events, Davis Cup and Fed Cup ties) within a two-year period is able to apply for membership. The board will review new member applications at the U.S. Open, and also conducts an annual review of members who may no longer meet ITWA criteria.
