Member Protection Policy

At Hope Ward Tennis Club we take seriously our duty of care to children and young people, as well as their families and community.

With this in mind, the Club has adopted the Tennis Australia Member Protection Policy ("the Policy") and the Tennis Australia Safeguarding Children Code of Conduct ("the Code") to ensure we implement best practice and standards to protect children and young people in our care.

The Policy and the Code have been developed by Tennis Australia as part of its ongoing commitment to the health, safety and wellbeing of its members and participants. Member Protection is all about practices and procedures, which protect a sports organisation's members including athletes, administrators, coaches and officials.

The Policy and the Code may be accessed in full at the following addresses:
