Safeguarding Training

Coaches play a key role in keeping those involved in tennis safe and are often the front line of delivery. Coaches have a shared responsibility with everyone else involved in tennis to promote the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk. We should all ensure those who are at risk are safeguarded from abuse and enjoy their tennis experience.
