From 1st October 2018, the LTA began to implement a system of achieving five Minimum Standards for clubs as a prerequisite to LTA registration. This replaces the previous Tennismark scheme.
The aim of the standards is to help to ensure that all LTA registered venues have health and safety, safeguarding and diversity and inclusion embedded into their practices and provide a safe and inclusive environment for children and adults.
The five minimum standards are:
1. Safeguarding policy and procedures
2. Diversity and Inclusion policy and procedures
3. Welfare officer
4. Criminal record checks
5. Risk assessment
The benefits of LTA registration are:
1. Venue insurance
2. Access to the British Tennis Members Wimbledon Ballot
3. Access to Clubspark, which is an online management system.
HLTC had all the requirements in place in November and is registered with the LTA for 2018-19. Registration costs us £110 per court, so in our case £880 for the year.
The LTA now conduct audits of clubs on a three yearly cycle. HLTC has been chosen to be audited in the first tranche and this will take place on Sunday April 7th. The committee must complete a self-assessment form and send out an LTA survey to all members.
All the Clubs policies are on the website in the members’ area, along with the rules and AGM Minutes, as well as on the noticeboard in the Clubhouse.
If you would like any further information, please contact Sue Darwent, HLTC Secretary at email@example.com or Clair Miller, HLTC Welfare Officer and Junior Co-ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
This year’s handicap tournament is on Sunday 5th May. Entry is open to all members who have paid their 2019 subscription by the tournament date.
There will be three events:
Please reserve the date – details to follow.
The deadline for registration for the 2019 Wimbledon Club ballot has now passed.
A massive thank you to all members who supported the club.
We exceeded all previous registrations as 156 members now have the option to enter the club ballot. We will be informed by the LTA later this month how many tickets we have been allocated and our ballot will be on Wednesday 8th May at 8 pm. Registration will start at 7:30.
Please note if you wish to go to Wimbledon this year and are unable to attend the ballot you can request a proxy to represent you. You can either ask a member already attending the ballot to act for you or contact Steph on 07720719170 and she will arrange for a committee member to act as your proxy.
Our first event of the new season takes place on WEDNESDAY 3rd April.
All members are invited to enjoy playing tennis (weather permitting), tuck in to a hotpot supper, and sample our fabulous selection of drinks at the bar, all amid good company and a party atmosphere.
Social Tennis starts from around 6pm and can continue up to 9 using the floodlights. Supper will be served from approximately 7.30pm. The quarterly 100 Club draw will also feature.
The charge will be £6 per person (payable on the night) but it would assist planning if you could text or phone Karen on 07801842674 to book.
You have just a few days left to help the club by registering for the Wimbledon Ballot either on the LTA website lta.org.uk or by phoning 0208 487 7000 .
We have a target to reach over 135 member registrations by February 22nd but to date just 120 members have registered. Please remind anyone you play with next week to help us out.
Just a gentle request for you to close the clubhouse door when you are playing and no other members are around.
There has been a further incident of someone wandering into the clubhouse uninvited. He (a youth) was approached and ran off. The CCTV is being reviewed.
