Safe Squash

We're committed to creating and maintaining a safe and positive environment for everyone to play squash. It's our shared responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children, young people and adults at risk and protect them from poor practice, abuse and bullying.

We recognise that everyone has a responsibility to safeguard and protect all young people and adults at risk and have therefore developed policy, procedures and guidelines in safeguarding and protecting young people and adults at risk in squash. These apply to all individuals involved, paid or in a voluntary capacity in squash.

Please see our safeguarding policy statement for more information on our approach to safeguarding. To access our full policies please see the links under the heading below.
