DBS Guidance

All qualified and registered table tennis coaches operating within England are required to obtain an Enhanced DBS Check.

What is it?

All qualified and registered table tennis coaches operating within England are required to obtain an Enhanced DBS Check (formerly CRB) certificate which must be renewed every 3 years. Table Tennis England uses a partial online DBS application system which makes it cheaper, faster and easier to obtain an Enhanced Disclosure Certificate, and will only accept checks carried out through TMG CRB. You will also be required to print your online application and take it to your local Post Office in order to validate your application. Details of this are explained below.
