Welfare & Safeguarding - Play Safe & Stay Safe @ HTC

Tennis is a sport that can be played by anyone. It is the aim of Haddenham Tennis Club to offer a safe and inclusive tennis environment to enable everyone to participate and feel welcome.

We all play a vital role in keeping children and vulnerable adults safe, both embedding practices that help promote people's well-being and responding to concerns if they arise.

To NOT report a concern is NOT an option.

We have produced a quick and easy guide to your safeguarding responsibilities - go to here
