Glanvilles Wootton is very lucky to have a tennis court which is available for all to use. While not actually a lawn it is an all weather tarmacadam court which is a medium paced surface producing a medium to high ball bounce. It is ideal for all levels of play. The court can be booked by writing your name together with the date and time you want to play on the booking form which is found on the notice board by the court. Details of where to locate the key and what to do with the court fee are also given on the notice board.
The pay and play charges are:
Children up to 14 – £1 an hour for the court
From age 14-18 – £1 an hour per player
Adults – £1.50 an hour per player
If you are a regular player you can join the club and then play as much as you like, subject to booking availability without court fees. Membership runs from April to April though if you join for the first time part-way through the year that year’s fee will be pro-rated. The fee is currently £45 per household which covers all adults and juniors living at that address. If you are interested in joining please contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to any players you see down at the court.
Our Club adopts new LTA Safeguarding standards
As a Club we are committed to meeting the LTA’s new standards for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. This means that the club has adopted new policies and procedures for safeguarding, diversity and inclusion. These two new policies are attached here.
We have undertaken a risk assessment of the club’s environment and activities and have agreed a variety of actions where necessary to reduce or eliminate risks wherever possible, including relevant background checks for the coaches and volunteers who have any significant responsibility for young people under 18 at the Club. However, whilst your club has taken these steps to keep our club a safe and enjoyable place to be, we also rely on each of us as members taking responsibility and appropriate action if necessary where the safety or welfare of others is concerned.
The Club has a trained volunteer Welfare Officer (Louise Sandy), who has key responsibilities to help safeguard the welfare of children and vulnerable adults at the club. If you are worried about the safety or welfare of a young person (under 18) or vulnerable adult at the club, you must take appropriate action to share your concerns by contacting Louise or the chair of the club Robert Frankcom.
If you have any questions about the actions that the club has taken, or any other aspect of safeguarding at the club, please do not hesitate to make contact with Louise (Tel: 01963 210256)
