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 should select the position which best describes the activity being undertaken.

Please note the following abbreviations and their meanings:

Vol = volunteer positions. Volunteer DBS checks cannot be used to undertake LTA coaching qualifications or gain LTA Coach Accreditation.

RA = positions which are Regulated Activity.

Non RA = positions which are not Regulated Activity.

If you are unsure whether to select an RA or Non-RA role, you can use the following documents to determine if someone is in Regulated Activity.
