Safeguarding overview



We strive to ensure that all children, young people and adults at risk are safeguarded from abuse and have an enjoyable tennis and padel experience.

Everyone who is involved in tennis and padel has a shared responsibility to support this by promoting the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk.
