Berkshire Tennis Safeguarding


Working with the Customer Support Team and Regional Safeguarding Team we have created a dedicated Welfare Officer page on the LTA website which will hopefully steer new and existing Welfare Officers to all the information they need.

We hope this will improve the Welfare Officer customer journey breaking down a lot of information into easier bit-size chunks depending on whether they are considering the role, new in post or already an existing welfare officer.

You will find the new dedicated page here - protection/welfare-officer/

The page can be accessed on the Safeguarding homepage and the Venue Standard page (under the Welfare Officer accordion).

The LTA Safeguarding Team launches its new 2021-23 Safeguardig Strateg

Safe To Play

Nothing is more important to the LTA than the safety and wellbeing of those involved in our sport. This campaign is aimed at ensuring everyone in tennis is able to keep children and themselves safe from harm.  We want to encourage people not to be a bystander – if you have a concern about a child - SAY SOMETHING IF YOU SEE SOMETHING.


The County Safeguarding Officer is responsible for assisting the LTA Safeguarding Team in promoting and embedding a culture of safeguarding and diversity and inclusion in Berkshire.   The team will assist in supporting registered venues to put in place procedures to safeguard children (U18) and adults, and will engage with venue Welfare Officers.
