Child Safeguarding

Child Protection Officers

Tullow & South Leinster Sports & Tennis Club is fully committed to safeguarding the well-being of its members. Every individual in the club should at all times show respect and understanding for their rights, safety and welfare, and conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of the club.

Tullow and South Leinster Tennis and Sports Club 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 renewal of membership, all members agree to abide by the Club’s Child Protection Policy and Codes of Conduct. These policies and codes are set out below and all members and their children should read and become familiar with them.

Tullow Tennis Club is not responsible for providing adult supervision for children other than at organised junior coaching, junior camps and junior tournaments. Tullow Tennis Club does not accept responsibility for juniors that arrive to the club 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.

The club’s child protection officers are available should any member have any questions or require any assistance in relation to child protection in the club

 Donnacha Harkin (Children’s officer – 086 823 9068)
