It is important that all entities are aware of this policy, its purpose and their procedural obligations relating to this policy.

Tennis NZ Code of Conduct

The Tennis New Zealand Code of Conduct is based on the principle that the best tennis is a product of concentration, discipline and enjoyment.


Tennis NZ Police Vetting Policy

Tennis Central Region is an ‘approved agency’ by the New Zealand Police. This entitles Tennis Central to request a Police vetting check to be carried out on any individual (with their consent) associated with Tennis Central Region and its activities under the guidelines outlined in Tennis NZ's Police Vetting Policy. To contribute to a safe and secure tennis environment, Tennis Central Region requires all coaches who currently operate at the Renouf Tennis Centre, Tennis Central staff along with travelling team coaches or managers who have sole or joint responsibility for children to undergo a Police vetting check every three years. Tennis Central can offer Central Clubs and Associations Police vetting checks at a fee of $30+ GST each. Tennis Central strongly recommends that clubs and other organisations apply directly to the NZ Police to become an 'Approved Agency' to conduct their own check.s
