In September last year the LTA decided to end Tennismark accreditation and required that all LTA registered clubs must meet Minimum Standards in five areas, focusing particularly on Safeguarding and Health & Safety. These Minimum Standards are audited by LTA visits to the Clubs and we had our first audit on 6th February.
Following the audit I am pleased to say that the LTA confirmed that the Club meets all their Minimum Standards and in some areas we exceed them. Thank you to Paul Kemsley, our Welfare Officer for his work in preparation for the LTA visit. If you have any concerns about Safeguarding issues please contact Paul on 07747 105459. To find out more about Safeguarding at the Club click here.
Thank you to all members who completed the LTA survey which formed part of the audit. It was pleasing to note those three little words “well managed club” cropping up frequently in the survey comments and we shall follow up on suggestions made for further improvement.
PS : Paul insisted that I include the following comment from him : “You may also be interested to know that the LTA auditor was very impressed with our website – well done to Katherine and, of course, to Chris Hazell who did so much to give it such a professional look”
