Avon Tennis is committed to offering a safe and inclusive environment for players, relatives, parents, and friends, wherever tennis is enjoyed in the County. In particular the safety of juniors (those aged under 18) and "vulnerable" adults is of the upmost priority.

Throughout all of our organised activities we adhere to the LTA's Safeguarding policies and procedures which are available on the LTA website: https://www.lta.org.uk/about-us/safeguarding-protection/

Avon Tennis own Safeguarding Statement and its full policy are available via the following links:
