Please find below PDF copies of Carisbrooke Tennis Club’s policies.
They are also available to view on the noticeboard in the clubhouse.
It also includes the club’s Code of Conduct and our reporting procedure.
From October 1, 2018, all British Tennis Registered Venues are required to meet five minimum standards as part of their British Tennis Venue Registration. Standard 1 – Safeguarding Policy and Procedures; Standard 2 – Diversity and Inclusion Policy and Procedures; Standard 3 – Welfare Officer Standard; 4 – Criminal Record Checks Standard; and 5 – Risk Assessment.
This is a positive move and one which will help support Carisbrooke in creating a safe, accessible, enjoyable and welcoming environment for everyone at the club.
So we’re able to register Carisbrooke as an LTA venue and maintain these standards, we have updated our policies and procedures accordingly. The above links take you to our latest, updated policies and procedures for Safeguarding, and Diversity & Inclusion.
Anyone who has any questions about the policies can get in touch with our newly-appointed Welfare Officer, Jo Pochin.
In accordance with Standard 3, Jo will be undertaking the relevant training and checks required to fulfil the role and will be responsible for any safeguarding questions or issues for the club.
In line with Standards 4 and 5, we will ensure that all relevant staff and volunteers at the club have the required criminal checks and the appropriate risk assessment is completed.
We will keep everyone updated with any further developments.
Please be assured that Carisbrooke Tennis Club take any matters relating to safeguarding very seriously and that safeguarding will be a permanent item on the agendas at our committee meetings.
