A Safeguarding policy and a Diversity and Inclusion policy are key requirements for the club in order to meet the LTA status of a Registered Venue.
The club aims to ensure that regardless of age, ability or disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation, socio-economic background, all adults and children have a positive and enjoyable experience of tennis at Ridgeway Tennis Club in a safe and inclusive environment.
The Club’s new Welfare Officer is Bernie Highfeld who has reviewed the Club’s existing policies and has produced new versions of each which have been accepted and approved by the Club’s Management Committee. They can be found by going to the Safeguarding and Diversity and Inclusion policies page where there is a link to the policies and the Welfare Officer poster. All members should familiarise themselves with them. Copies will be posted on the noticeboard in the club pavilion.
