Safeguarding

 If you are an individual and have a concern about any Bellfield Park Tennis Club activity refer to and report a concern here; in an emergency dial 999.

Bellfield Park Tennis Club is committed to prioritising the well-being of all children and adults at risk, and promoting safeguarding in our activities at all times, including all squads, programmes, events, camps and competitions we run.

Bellfield Park Tennis Club welfare officer is Brigitte Johnstone who can be contacted on 07762 342787.


Bellfield Park Tennis Club's full safeguarding policy can be found here . We are committed to the LTA's Safe and Inclusive Code of Conduct, and implementing safe and inclusive tennis standards throughout all our activity.

Parents, we would encourage you to read this information on safeguarding for your child including choosing the right coach and venue.

Volunteers working in Bellfield Park Tennis Club can benefit from free PVG membership registration or if already a PVG member, an update check via Tennis Scotland can be done.  If you are in a paid role on behalf of the club the will cost £59. Everyone working with children and vulnerable adults unsupervised or on a regular basis should be part of the PVG membership scheme and have an up to date check done in that capacity to ensure their suitability for doing so. PVG forms can be requested here. Once completed, PVG forms will need verified with identification in person before returning. Lizzy Burke is the Bellfield Park verifier on behalf of Tennis Scotland. She can be contacted by emailing lizzy.burke@btinternet.com; alternatively you can email kirsty.humphries@tennisscotland.co.uk,  who can also complete the process.
