DBS overview

2 MINUTE READ

A DBS check is a record of all warnings, reprimands, cautions and convictions obtained from local and national police records. Police forces may also choose to disclose soft intelligence that they reasonably consider might be relevant to the role.

Positions in tennis

A list of positions in tennis can be found below, including what type of DBS check they require. If a position is not listed you can select the position which best explains the activity being undertaken. For example, Junior Helper covers a range of activities with children which may include helping out with on court activities, being a Tennis Leader, assisting at county cup events, and so forth.

In the event that none of the positions shown describes the activity being undertaken (i.e., does not involve working with children), or the level of check for a position is believed to be incorrect, please contact the LTA Services Team via the contact us form.
