Safeguarding Children & Young People
The Club has a comprehensive Child Protection policy and strives to ensure that tennis is a safe, friendly and enjoyable experience for all young people. The Club is committed to making sure that children and young people enjoy tennis in a safe environment in which they are protected from any form of abuse. Our Child Protection policy works to maintain this fundamental right of young people. It also instils good practice and raises awareness for everyone involved in the game. Our policy is backed up by training and education and a sensitive process to respond to concerns.
