Tennismark – Quality Club Accreditation
It shows that a club provides the right environment which ensures the welfare of members and encourages everyone to enjoy sport and stay involved throughout their lives.
An accredited club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages as well as helping parents and carers know that they're choosing the right club for their young people.
What is Tennismark?
Tennismark is the LTA's evolution of the old Clubmark accreditation. It is based on criteria which must be supported by specific evidence. Based on four key areas of club development it centres around:
- Activity/playing programmes - this includes, for example, coaching qualifications required, insurance and coach to participant ratios
- Duty of care and welfare - appropriate risk assessments, health and safety policies, training, compliance and child protection policies
- Knowing your club and its community - this ensures that your club is committed to fairness and equity in respect of the way in seeks to attract and retain members from your local community
- Club management - which covers issues to do with club and committee structures and the general running of the organisation
