Code of conduct for club officials and volunteers 


The essence of good ethical conduct and practice is summarised below.

All volunteers must: 

  •  Consider the well-being and safety of participants before the development of performance.
  •  Develop an appropriate working relationship with participants, based on mutual trust and respect.
  •  Make sure all activities are appropriate to the age, ability and experience of those taking part.
  •  Promote the positive aspects of the sport (e.g. fair play). 
  •  Display consistently high standards of behaviour and appearance.
  • Follow all guidelines laid down by Table Tennis England and the club.
  •  Hold appropriate valid qualifications and insurance cover.
  •  Never exert undue influence over performers to obtain personal benefit or reward.
  •  Never condone rule violations, rough play or the use of prohibited substances. 
  •  Encourage participants to value their performances and not just results.
  •  Encourage and guide participants to accept responsibility for their own performance and behaviour.
