Meet our Welfare Officer - Audrey Michael

My name is Audrey Michael (for those who don’t know me),  I am the Welfare Officer for the Club.  

I arrived at Cleeve Hill Tennis Club in 2005 for adult tennis coaching lessons and have not looked back.

I met my husband at the Club, and we now have two children. It’s been like a second home for us; everyone is so welcoming. We’ve tried to give back by taking on various roles. Pre-children, we were very involved with organising social events. 

I took on the role of Club Secretary for a while and now help where I can. I get to play summer league and have now made it to Vets not giving away my age……

The Welfare Officer is responsible for promoting safeguarding in the club with others, to ensure a safe and inclusive environment is achieved. Ensuring our policies are up to date and to be a first point of contact if needed. I have attended the LTA Safeguarding and Protection in Tennis course, and been DBS checked. I’ve also attended several LTA courses on Safeguarding which are available to all to view on the LTA website Safeguarding in Tennis Awareness Week (

There is a Welfare Officers notice board just as you enter the club; it has up-to-date policies and information about safeguarding.

Report a Concern

If you have any concerns, you can also log them using the LTA portal Register a Concern | Tennis Association | Tennis in Britain (; all concerns will be treated confidentially and sensitively.

The main thing to remember is that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility, and we must look after each other.
