We are committed to prioritising the well-being of all children and adults at risk, promoting safeguarding in our venues at all times, including all programmes and events we run.
Safeguarding children and adults at risk requires everyone to be committed to the highest possible standards of openness, integrity and accountability. Poole's tennis venues and coaches are committed to encouraging and maintaining a culture where people feel able to raise a genuine safeguarding concern and are confident that it will be taken seriously.
How to raise a concern about a child or an adult at risk at a tennis venue in Poole
If a child or an adult at risk is in immediate danger or risk of harm, the police should be contacted by calling 999.
Where a child or an adult at risk is not in immediate danger, any concerns about their well-being should be made without delay to either the BCP Council Safeguarding Team, to the LTA Safeguarding Team or the NSPCC and the police will be contacted where appropriate.
Reporting a safeguarding concern outside the tennis environment
If you are worried that a child is being abused outside the tennis environment (for example, at home, school or in the community) but the concern is identified through the child's involvement in tennis, the Reporting a concern outside tennis flowchart explains what to do.
Reporting contact details If you have any questions about safeguarding in tennis, please contact the LTA on safeguarding@LTA.org.uk or 0208 487 7000.
