Dutch Tennis Coach Max Vanders Banned For 12 Years For Match-Fixing


Dutch tennis coach Max Vanders has been banned from the sport for 12 years over match-fixing. The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) confirmed this on Wednesday. According to the ITIA, the vendors have admitted to multiple match-fixing allegations and have also admitted to destroying evidence.

“The International Tennis Integrity Agency (ITIA) has today confirmed that Dutch tennis coach Max Wenders has been banned from the sport for 12 years after admitting to multiple match-fixing charges,” the ITIA said in a statement.

However, the ITIA Did Not Specify When and Where the Alleged Conduct Took Place and Did Not Name Any Players

The case was originally heard in April 2021 by Professor Richard McLaren, the Anti-Corruption Hearing Officer (AHO), who ruled that vendors must also pay a $12,000 fine.

Publication of the approval was delayed following arguments from the vendors’ legal team, although AHO McLaren has now lifted that restriction.

According to reports, Vendors worked with several players on the WTA Tour as coaches, assistants or hitting partners.
