Disclosure and Barring validation
Criminal Record Checks
The LTA is committed to ensuring that all children and adults at risk enjoy tennis in a safe and enjoyable environment. People seeking to work with children or adults at risk within tennis are therefore required to obtain a satisfactory criminal record check. In England and Wales, individuals must obtain DBS check. In Scotland, individuals must register with the Protecting Vulnerable Groups Scheme (PVGS).
Due to the continuing COVID situation, the Essex County Office remains closed with staff working remotely from home. We had intended to re open the office for Validation checks from 1st October but due to new Government guidelines will not be doing so. There is now a virtual LTA validation check as well as the option to visit a Post Office. For your nearest participation post office see the link below. If circumstances change we will post on this website. In the meantime we apologise for the inconvenience
