Club Policies

Introduction
Knutsford Tennis Club is Tennis Mark accredited.  This means that the Club's programmes, policies and procedures are in line with best practice as recognised by the tennis governing body, the Lawn Tennis Association.  

Knutsford Tennis Club is a thriving club and should provide a safe and inclusive environment for everyone to enjoy playing tennis. There are a number of enabling policies the LTA have developed to achieve this aim:

       Fair Play

       Equality and Diversity, including complaints procedure;

       Safeguarding Policy;

       Recording and Publishing Images policies; and

       The LTA’s code of conduct for working with children, young people and adults at risk, 

       The Sun Safety policy.

       The LTA’s Standards and Etiquette

 Knutsford Tennis Club Committee have reviewed these policies and agreed their adoption and implementation for the Club.  

Fair Play

Fair Play in tennis has always been an important value and the LTA and Tennis Foundation are committed to ensuring that the tennis environment is fair, open and inclusive at every level in the sport.

 Fair Play Values

Enjoy

Respect

   Tennis is your sport so enjoy it. Love the game.

   Be a good sport when you win, lose and watch matches.

   Be a role model and set a good example of the behaviour you expect from others.

   Let’s create a safe, fun and fair tennis environment.

   Tennis is a game for everyone. Respect other players, parents and officials.

   Take responsibility for your actions.

   Learn and follow the rules and the Fair Play values.

   Call the score and lines loudly and fairly.

These values apply equally to players, parents, coaches, officials and volunteers and cover all tennis activities, whether it is a competition, a friendly hit at a local court or a match you’re watching. Supporting the values are individual Fair Play pledges for each group of people in the sport.

Equality and Diversity Policy

The aim of this policy is to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect and ensure members, non-members and visiting teams are not denied access to our tennis venue because of a discriminatory reason. In the event that any employee, member, volunteer, visitor or visiting team feels that he, she or they have suffered discrimination or harassment in any way or that the policies, rules or code of conduct have been broken they should a member of the Committee and follow Knutsford Tennis Club’s Complaints Procedure.

Safeguarding Policy

Knutsford Tennis Club is a safe environment for children as coaching staff have been vetted and attended appropriate training that is current and maintained. We have Welfare Officer who is the first point of contact if there are any concerns. The policy applies to children, young people and adults at risk.

Recording and Publishing Images Policy

This policy covers the need to register those people who wish to take pictures, the need to obtain consent from adults for the use of pictures and the standards around taking pictures and storing them using social media or other publicity.

Code of Practice for working with young children and the Sun safety policy.

This LTA policy sets out the standards expected from individuals and the Club when working with young children. The Sun Safety Policy sets out protective measures for playing outdoors.

Standards and Etiquette

The LTA have issued guidelines that the Club has agreed to adopt.
