The Gardens LTC (your club!) is an LTA registered venue which involves responsibility for meeting and maintaining certain minimum standards

The standards are being introduced to ensure that all LTA Registered Venues have safeguarding and diversity and inclusion embedded into their practices and provide a safe and inclusive environment for children and adults. The LTA has developed these based on experience, to protect clubs and users from avoidable situations. The minimum standards are as follows:

  1. Safeguarding Policy and Procedures (including a Whistleblowing Policy);
  2. Diversity and Inclusion Policy and Procedures;
  3. Welfare Officer;
  4. Criminal Record Checks;
  5. Risk Assessment.

Full details of what the club must do from 1 October 2018 can be found on the LTA website HERE.
