Telephone & First Aid Kit
There is a telephone for emergency outgoing calls in the cupboard by the club noticeboard. This is also where the first aid kit is kept, should you need it. It is also suggested that members make sure they have a mobile phone courtside for making emergency calls, too.
Refer a friend scheme
We have a ‘Refer a Friend’ scheme. Members can claim a rebate of £20 on their membership fee for any new member that they recruit to the Club. Currently this applies only to new squash members. To receive the rebate the new member must inform us of who introduced them to the Club.
The following conditions apply:
· the new member must have signed up for at least 6 months membership (if joining within 6 months of the end of the membership year, the rebate will be paid when the new member pays their fee for the following year);
· the £20 rebate is for adult, full-time membership, it will be scaled down on a pro rata basis if the member is in the junior, intermediate or weekday categories;
· the scheme is limited to a maximum of 3 introductions per membership year.
Safeguarding and the welfare of children at the Club
The Club welcomes children as members to play sport at the Club and to participate in coaching programmes. We are aware of our responsibilities to ensure that they participate in a safe environment. We have put in place policies and procedures for safeguarding that apply both for children and adults at risk. These policies have been developed using guidance provided by the sports’ governing bodies: Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and Scottish Squash. Links to the policy statement and policy are given below,
In accordance with the policy, the Club has appointed Amanda Jones as our Welfare Officer. Her appointment is approved by the LTA. She is the first point of contact for any safeguarding concerns. She liaises with the safeguarding teams at the LTA and Scottish Squash as appropriate. The role of the Welfare Officer has been set out by the LTA and can be accessed from the link below.
Amanda’s contact details may be found on the contacts page of the website and are provided in Appendix C of the Policy.
Parents of children who are members of the Club need to be aware that the Club has no staff and there may be no adult members present (other than at coaching sessions) whilst their child is at the Club.
Children under the age of 14 may not use the Clubhouse (other than the toilets) or play squash without adult supervision.

Diversity and Equality
The Club’s constitution states that membership will not be denied on the basis of playing ability or any of the ‘protected characteristics’ set out in the Equality Act 2010. It is our responsibility to ensure that our members and any other person present at the Club are not treated unfairly or subject to any form of harassment because of their race, sexual orientation, etc.
With the advice of the LTA, we have put in place policies and reporting procedures to be followed if such discrimination takes place. Should any member be concerned about discriminatory or abusive behaviour they should report this to a member of the Management Committee.
Members may have concerns about safeguarding or diversity issues that do not directly affect themselves or their children. They may wish to consult the Club’s Whistleblowing policy and are encouraged to report their concerns to a member of the Management Committee.

Rubbish & Recycling
The committee would like to remind everyone of the procedures in place for disposing of rubbish/recycling. Rubbish should be placed in bins lined with black bags: our cleaner places them in the gull-proof bag at the Lennox St entrance where they are picked up by DM Clearances, who recycle as much as possible. Food/wet waste should be put in compostable bags, which can be found under the sink. Old tennis balls can be placed in the container in the clubhouse – not left outside the clubhouse door.
