Representatives of eight European domestic leagues, whose competitions are played across 17 countries, and the Union of European Leagues of Basketball met EuroLeague Basketball execs on Wednesday and discussed a new EuroLeague Basketball proposal that will be shared with FIBA this month. The objectives behind the global calendar part of the proposal -- to allow professional clubs and national federations to promote basketball in a coordinated manner, ensuring the availability of all players for national teams -- were agreed to by representatives of domestic leagues (EuroLeague).
The Int'l Tennis Federation created an ITF Women in Sport Committee to promote equal opportunities on and off the court. The goal of the committee will be to advise and make recommendations to the ITF board on ways of promoting equal opportunities for girls and women to participate in tennis and the leadership of the sport. The Women in Sport Committee will be chaired by USTA President Katrina Adams (ITF).
