Child Protection

Naas LTC has adopted and implemented the Code of Ethics and Good Practice
for Children’s Sport as set out by Tennis Ireland, as an integral part of club
policy on children and club membership.

Upon joining the Club or on renewal of annual membership, all members
agree to abide by the Code of Conduct and the Club’s Child Protection Policy.

These codes and policies are available to read here on the Club website and
all members and their parents/guardians should read and become familiar
with them.

The Club Children’s Officers are available should any member have any
questions or require any assistance in relation to child protection within the
Club. The Children’s Officers for Naas LTC are:

Margaret Hughes (087) 6993091

Conor Ward (086) 388 3000

The Club is not responsible for providing adult supervision for children except
for during formal Club coaching, matches and competitions. The Club does
not accept responsibility for unsupervised junior members during
recreational play where children arrive to play on their own. It is strongly
recommended that if children are playing in the Club independently of the
Club’s organised activities that a parent/guardian stays with them for the
duration of the activity.

It is the responsibility of each parent/guardian to ensure that their child is adequately supervised at all other times that they are on the club premises. (including times when the child is receiving private coaching organised by the child’s parents).

For all child protection related policies, please head to the Policy Section on this site.

For more information from our governing body, please see Tennis Ireland’s Child Protection Section on their website

Many thanks

Naas LTC Executive
