TENNIS AUSTRALIA COMMITMENT STATEMENT
Tennis Australia has a zero tolerance approach to any form of child-abuse and is committed to ensuring the sport of tennis is a safe and friendly environment for children and young people.
We are committed to providing a safe environment for all tennis participants, including Indigenous children and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children and adults living with a disability who participate in tennis activities.
Child-safety must be embedded in our organisation’s culture, reflected in our policies and procedures, and understood and practised at all levels of the sport.
It is essential everyone involved with delivering tennis in Australia understands the important responsibilities they have in relation to child-safety including club administrators, volunteers, parents and participants.
Our commitment extends beyond creating an environment that minimises risk or danger. It is about building an environment that is both child-safe and child-friendly.
Together we can provide an environment in which children feel respected, valued and encouraged to reach their full potential.
