Highland Tennis District 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 chosing the right coach and venue.

Volunteers working in clubs affliated to highlands tennis can benefit from free PVG membership registeration or if already a member, an update check via tennis scotland (if you are in a paid role this costs £59). Everyone working with children and vulnerable adults unsupervised or on a regular bases should be part of the PVG membership scheme and have an upto date check done in that capacity to ensure their suitablity for doing so. PVG forms can be requested here. Once completed PVG forms will need verified with identification in person before returning. Annerle is the highland tennis verifier on behalf of tennisscotland, alternatively kirsty.humphries@tennisscotland can also complete the process.
