Keeping play fair and our members safe...
At Knutsford Tennis Club, we feel that it's important to keep our members safe and for everyone playing tennis to enjoy the experience. Here are some basic guidelines and information to support this, and to help our members get the most out of playing.
Knutsford Tennis Club is Tennis Mark accredited.
This means that the Club's programmes, policies and procedures are in line with best practice as recognised by the tennis governing body, the Lawn Tennis Association.
Knutsford Tennis Club is a thriving club and should provide a safe and inclusive environment for everyone to enjoy playing tennis. There are a number of enabling policies the LTA have developed to achieve this aim:
• Fair Play
• Equality and Diversity, including complaints procedure
• Safeguarding Policy
• Recording and Publishing Images policies
• LTA code of conduct for involving children, young people and adults at risk
• The Sun Safety policy.
• The LTA’s Standards and Etiquette
Knutsford Tennis Club Committee have reviewed these policies and agreed their adoption and implementation for the Club.

Fair Play in tennis has always been an important value and the LTA and Tennis Foundation are committed to ensuring that the tennis environment is fair, open and inclusive at every level in the sport.
These values apply equally to players, parents, coaches, officials and volunteers and cover all tennis activities, whether it is a competition, a friendly hit at a local court or a match you’re watching. Supporting the values are individual Fair Play pledges for each group of people in the sport.
