Safe Guarding Officer - Dave Birks - 07515512875

The LTA strives to ensure that all children, young people and adults at risk are safeguarded from abuse and have an enjoyable tennis experience. 

Everyone who is involved in tennis has a shared responsibility to support this by promoting the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk.

What we do at our club?

 All coaches at our club will have the required DBS and if required specific Safe Guarding training.

If  a concern is raised, we follow the LTA 3R's - Respond, Refer and Record; this ensures these are dealt with in a professional and confidential matter.

All children are trated fairly and equally where they have the right to be in a safe enviroment which provides security
