Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Tennis Wales work closely with British Tennis to ensure tennis in Wales takes place in a safe environment. Tennis Wales approve and adopt the All Wales Child Protection Procedures and implement all policies a in-line with British Tennis.

Tennis Wales' Lead Safeguarding Officer in Wales is Ellie Lewis and she can be contacted at: ellie.lewis@tenniswales.org.uk  / 07949 500497. Please contact Ellie for any query relating to Safeguarding & Protection.

Tennis Wales 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.

The LTA have produced a toolkit 'What's the Score: Safe and Inclusive Tennis' which includes all documents and check lists for tennis venues to use and adopt to shape the right environment for people to play.
