HUman Rights Tribunal Application Updates - July 20 2016
 
As you are aware, there are four Applications pending before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. The Applicants have named the Intercounty Tennis Association as Respondent.

The relief sought by them, in each Application, is identical, being:
“That the ICTA Mixed League be required to specify that there be an equal number of men and women fielded each match night in the Mixed League and that there be equal numbers of women and men on teams in the Mixed League. That the ICTA Mixed League be required to make this change prior to beginning play in the Mixed League 2016.”
Mediation is an optional process. The Applicants and the Association agreed to attend mediation and it was held on July 12, 2016. Prior to that date, and as you may recall, we had convened a special meeting of the members (on June 8, 2016) to discuss our approach. At that time, the members, as represented by the club representatives, voted in support of the status quo (Mixed League fixture format consisting of eight men and four women), with 31 in favour, 4 against, and 5 abstentions).

As a party to a proceeding before the Tribunal, we are not at liberty to share with you the nature of the discussions held during the three-hour mediation on that date. We are at liberty to indicate to you that the matter did not settle and that it is likely that a hearing will be scheduled for early 2017.
At this time, the Executive is weighing its options and will be meeting again in the next two weeks to discuss them.
We will continue to keep you updated as this matter progresses.
 

 

The InterCounty Tennis Association was founded in 1962 by Forbes Mountain who played out of the Brampton Tennis Club in Brampton Ontario Canada. The InterCounty Tennis Association is dedicated to the advancement of team tennis in Southern Ontario.

Over 90 clubs presently belong to the ICTA. Member clubs to the ICTA stretch from Pickering to Oakville and from Toronto's downtown Lakeshore to King City, Caledon and beyond.

Member clubs of the ICTA must pay an annual fee of $30.00 by the Spring AGM and $60.00  by April 15 for each team entered in league play. Clubs wanting to join the ICTA should notify the President, and introduce their club at the Annual General Meeting in October or the Spring Meeting in March.

Requirements for new clubs are availability of 2 courts minimum (please consult each League's rules for more details), lights (if there are evening teams), and provisions for washrooms.
