Nothing is more important than providing youngsters with a safe and secure environment in which to participate in sport and physical recreation – and to reinforce and uphold this, Table Tennis Wales has achieved Level Two of the NSPCC Standards for Safeguarding Children in Sport.

Table Tennis Wales takes its duty of care to safeguard and protect the welfare of children participating in the sport extremely seriously – and it is bestowed into every member that it is their responsibility to help ensure that the highest standards of care are maintained, and any abuse is reported immediately.

In addition to the welfare of children, Table Tennis Wales also takes its responsibilities very seriously in terms of its duty to care to adults at risk and there are separate policies in place to reflect this area of safeguarding.

If you would like access to the information, Table Tennis Wales has a strict code of conduct, policies and procedures – all of which can be read in the accompanying pages. These are regularly monitored and updated, and we welcome any comments from adults and young people alike.

Table Tennis Wales also supports clubs to ensure their own policies and procedures are robust, and we liaise directly with them to provide this support. This is essential not only for the protection of children and adults but also for clubs and club organisers themselves.

Martyn Dew is the Table Tennis Wales National Safeguarding Officer and he is responsible for providing help and advice to the table tennis community. You can contact Martyn via email on or telephone 07500046861.


Keeping Your Child Safe in Sport animation

This animation has been produced as part of our Keeping Your Child Safe in Sport campaign launch to introduce the campaign and what parents should do to keep their child safe.

We are introduced to a parent who is dropping his child at training. He considers whether he has all the safeguarding information about the club that he should have before dropping his child off.
