We strive to ensure that all children, young people and adults at risk are safeguarded from abuse and have an enjoyable tennis experience.

Everyone who is involved in tennis has a shared responsibility to support this by promoting the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk.

Dorset LTA adheres to the LTA’s Safeguarding policies and procedures which can be found on the Safeguarding page of the  LTA website .  Information on how to report a concern, FAQ’s and Resources can also be found on this page.
