LTA Audit result
In September 2018, the LTA decided to end Tennismark accreditation and required that all LTA registered clubs must meet Minimum Standards in five areas, focussing 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 2019. Following the audit, 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. To find out more about Safeguarding at the Club, follow the links on this page.
