Safeguarding & Equality at Congresbury Tennis Club

Safeguarding Children and Young People

Everyone who participates in Congresbury LTC is entitled to do so in an enjoyable and safe environment. In addition, abuse of any person under the age of 18 will not be tolerated (for simplicity called children in this document).  We expect all members of the tennis community to recognise their responsibility to protect and ensure the well-being of all children associated to tennis.
