The Avenue Tennis Club Policies Logo

Welfare Officer

We are meticulous about child protection at The Avenue Tennis Club.

All our coaches have recent Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, previously CRB) checks. In line with Lawn Tennis Association recommendations, we ask all our coaches to fill in self-certificates every six months.

Diane Ryan is our Welfare Officer, she and her family have played at the club for many years.  She lives very close to the club and can be contacted easily.  Her role at the club includes receiving and acting on any reported child protection concerns, whether they come from members of the club or members of the public. Her role is to ensure that the child protection policy is implemented and promoted and that the club follows best practice in safeguarding.

Diane says, “I am often at the club. Please come and speak to me if you would like to discuss any child protection concerns or have any suggestions about how we can make the club safer for our young players and vulnerable members. Alternatively, please get in touch by phone or email”.
