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.
