David Haggerty is re-elected president of the International Tennis Federation

David Haggerty was reelected president of the International Tennis Federation by receiving more than 70% of the vote on Sunday.

Haggerty, an American, will serve a four-year term that ends in 2027. This will be his third term; he originally was chosen as ITF president in 2015.

He got 318 of the 436 votes cast at the ITF’s annual general meeting, which is about 73% — and nearly 100 more than the 219 needed.

Dietloff von Arnim, the president of the German Tennis Federation, was the other finalist for the ITF’s top job.

David Haggerty, ITF President, said: “I’d like to thank the ITF membership for placing their faith in me for a further term. Our long-term sustainable growth strategy, ITF 2024, has resulted in the ITF’s funding for tennis development nearly doubling in just a few years since its introduction.

“I very much look forward to working alongside our Executive and Board to review and refresh our strategy for this next phase. We will ensure we place the ITF’s competitions on a strong footing and continue to fuel investment in the global development of our game to deliver the ITF’s mission of tennis for future generations.”

The voting procedure for the Presidential and Board elections has been approved and overseen by the Election Panel (a sub-group of the independent Ethics Commission), with electronic voting procedures implemented for the first time and provided by Lumi Global (an expert provider of electronic voting systems for global corporations and international sporting organisations).
