Wrexham Tennis Club and North Wales Regional Tennis Centre
have jointly become the first organisations in Wales to achieve the
Lawn Tennis Association's (LTA) Tennis Clubmark award.
Tennis Clubmark provides a framework to help clubs develop and to ensure that their programmes, policies and procedures are all in line with best practice.
The club and the centre, which are based together in Plas Coch Road, Wrexham gained Clubmark status by demonstrating their contribution to British tennis and their continual improvement of their club, coaches, competition and off-court polices and procedures.
Margaret Holdsworth, secretary of Wrexham Tennis Club, said: "It's good to know that we are getting things right in Wrexham, especially by meeting best practice in relation to health and safety and child protection.
"Everyone involved in the club and the centre can be proud to know that they are recognised for making a real contribution towards the future of British tennis."
Roger Draper, chief executive of the LTA, said: "Clubs that have joined the scheme are finding it well worth it. By having recognised standards of child protection, coaching, equity and good management they find it easier to attract and keep members, improve the club's profile and build for the future."
Wrexham Tennis Club dates back to 1913, when it was founded as Garden Village Lawn Tennis Club. It now boasts almost 200 members and has teams in the North Wales and Chester leagues.
The North Wales Regional Tennis Centre was opened in September 1990, as part of the LTA's Indoor Tennis Initiative. It is a 'pay and play' centre, open to all, with no membership system, and is run by a non-profit making management company on behalf of the council.
