Tennis South Africa has announced that Andre Homan has been appointed as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Homan replaces Richard Glover, who stepped down from the role at the end of 2021 after five years at the helm.

A statement from the tennis governing body read: “Andre brings with him a wealth of both academic and practical knowledge.

Homan joins TSA from the position of Director of Sales and Hospitality for Circa, a leading company specialising in commercial ventures relating to major events and stadiums, including Ellis Park.

“Andre has also been the General Manager of the Golden Lions Rugby Union’s amateur arm – managing school, club, youth development and training programmes at grass roots and elite levels for more than 10 years.  His long interest in sport is also evidenced by his career as a provincial rugby player for both the Leopards and the Lions and his qualifications in coaching/officiating in rugby and athletics.”

Homan will start his new job on 1 February.

“With the federation’s rich history and many successes over the last few years, this is an exciting time for tennis,” he said. “Despite the many challenges sporting organisations face in South Africa, I believe there is a huge opportunity to grow the game and make it more accessible and inclusive. I look forward to working closely with the tennis fraternity and plan to embrace the task of helping TSA’s diverse stakeholders achieve their goals with enthusiasm and vigour.”
