Lawn Tennis Association and ClubMark

The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) leads the development of British Tennis and strongly supports clubs like Stocksfield (www.lta.org.uk). Their most recent financial support helped fund both the new courts, floodlights and fencing. They provide support and advice regarding running the club and coaching at all levels.

As a club, we are striving to achieve the LTA Clubmark recognition. Tennis Clubmark is a club's opportunity to be recognised for achieving excellent standards. Achieving Tennis Clubmark means the LTA endorses and supports a club's tennis programme, policies and procedures, action and development planning, and club management.

As part of this, we have adopted the following policies (a copy of each being available in the clubhouse should you wish to see it).

  • Child Protection Policy
  • Guide to Safer Recruitment
  • Code of conduct for People working with Children
  • The Photography & Filming of Children - why it matters
  • Club Equality Policy and Complaints procedure
  • Roles and responsibilities summaries for volunteers
  • Guidelines for accidents
  • Code of practice for parents, guardians and young people
  • Tennis Club constituition and Club action plan
