GARDA VETTING AND CHILD PROTECTION GO HAND IN HAND
The Garda Vetting process is a vital step in implementing the Code of Conduct and Good Practice for Children in Tennis. Each organisation/club working within tennis is committed to protecting all those working with young people and to providing a safe environment for all. The Garda Vetting process is just one step in the process of implementing the ‘Code’. Leaders should also sign a code of conduct within their club / organisation and children and leaders should be adequately supervised. Please refer to our safeguarding page where you can find templates for all your clubs needs in building a safe environment for children in our sport.
For further information please contact our Tennis Ireland Office to speak with Lisa Murphy or Roger Geraghty, Tennis Ireland’s National Children’s Officer.
