Social Media Guidelines

Table Tennis England takes its responsibility in terms of providing advice and guidelines in respect of safeguarding our young people and vulnerable adults very seriously.

In recent years the use of social media networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, My Space, YouTube, Tumblr and Bebo have become immensely popular with both adults and young people alike.  Used safely they provide an incredible tool to enable us all to promote our sport, publicise events and make contact with our members whether that be at club, league, county or national level.  In addition sites like You Tube allow us to be able to upload clips and videos to share moments from our sport which can reach tens of thousands of people at the click of a button.

Unfortunately whilst the use of these, and other, types of social media offer exciting opportunities they bring with them dangers and the ability for abuse if not used safely.

These guidelines are intended to be used by both young people and adults alike in order to use social media safely and in a manner that makes the most of the advantages.  For the purposes of this policy young people are defined as under the age of 18.
