The International Tennis Federation (ITF) has announced on its official website that players from Russia and Belarus can participate in the 2024 Olympics and Paralympics in Paris as neutrals, providing they meet the conditions of neutrality set by the International Olympic and Paralympic Committees.

“Neutral athletes will need to meet the selection and eligibility requirements as set out in the applicable ITF Regulations.

“The ITF decision aligns with the majority of International Federations (IFs) regarding individual competition and athletes participating in the Paris 2024 Games this summer. The ITF’s position is also in accordance with tennis’ existing international policy which was adopted in March 2022”, the ITF says in its statement.


The Summer Olympics will be held in Paris, France from July 26 to Aug. 11, with the Paralympic Games taking place from Aug. 28 to Sept. 8.
