Hi Myles


Thanks for making us feel welcome on Monday night, I enjoyed the trip out to Hahndorf!


I thought the session went well and I hope you did too. It was a great turn out by your clubs and seemed to be well received.


Attached is a copy of the Presentations


“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. It is imperative that children and young people who access our activities, programs, events or services feel safe and supported.


As part of this commitment Tennis Australia and Tennis SA are providing child-safety workshops this week to educate clubs, coaches and associations on the new Safeguarding Children policies and resources.


While representation from a club is not mandatory at these sessions, Tennis SA will maintain a register of workshop participants as a record of which Clubs attended to listen to what is best practice in Safeguarding Children.


If you haven’t attended a child-safety workshop this week and would like to, please contact Darren Sahb (Tennis SA – Education Officer) to obtain a list of proposed dates in September.”


I have also attached the PowerPoint presentation from the Workshop as well as a very useful presentation I attended recently as part of Child Safe training through the Office of Recreation and Sport. .


Feel free to contact me to discuss this or any other matters in relation to tennis policies.

Good luck with the 2017/2018 season!
