As we start to look forward and plan for a return to table tennis, now is an ideal time for clubs and leagues to check-in on safeguarding and ensure that they are up to date with all of the latest information.

To assist this, Table Tennis England will be hosting a series of webinars starting on Wednesday June 10.

Topics will include;

  • Why is Safeguarding Important for Table Tennis Clubs and Leagues? (Wednesday June 10, noon):
    How can clubs protect all their members, how to manage certain scenarios, club responsibilities and where to find guidance.
  • The Role of the Welfare Officer (Wednesday June 17, noon):
    Why does a club need a welfare officer, what are the responsibilities of the role and how much time does it take? What experience should a person have and where can they access training?
  • Volunteer Recruitment and DBS Checking (Wednesday June 24, noon):
    Who needs to be checked – the roles, what type of check should be undertaken, portability of checks, using the Update Service.
