About the club
Linlithgow Sports Club is a not-for-profit club owned by its members and is a registered Community Amateur Sports Club.
The club was founded in 1982 and offers multi sports activities to more than 400 members who enjoy excellent facilities, which include 4 floodlit all weather tennis courts, 2 squash courts and a top quality bowling green.
The clubhouse provides changing/locker room facilities, squash viewing gallery and a comfortable lounge bar, which can be booked for private functions.
How it's organised
General management of the club is the responsibility of the Board Of Management which oversees general finance, maintenance and membership of the overall facility.
Each sports section has it's own committee to represent the members and to organise all the issues associated with the running and development of the sport.
Each sports section holds an Annual General Meeting prior to a club Annual General Meeting, scheduled in February each year. The club AGM is the opportunity for the BOM to report to the membership on past year performance and developments, elect office bearers to committee positions for the new year and agree subscription fee levels for the new season.
All members are encouraged to participate and 'have their say about their club'.
Child/Young Person/Vulnerable Adult Statement
Every child and young person/vulnerable adult who plays bowls, squash or tennis at this club should be allowed to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from abuse. This is the responsibility of every club member.
The National Governing Bodies of Sport recognise their responsibilities to safeguard the welfare of all children and young people by protecting them from physical, sexual, or emotional harm and from neglect or bullying. Child abuse is a very emotive and difficult subject and it is important to understand the feeling involved but not to allow them to interfere with judgement about action to be taken. This club is determined to meet its obligations to ensure that all children and young people are allowed to participate in as safe an environment as possible. Any concerns of child abuse should be reported to the club's Welfare Officer.
The key principles underpinning this policy are:
The child’s welfare is and must always be the paramount consideration. Children have a right to be in a safe environment and the club will endeavor to provide that security.
All children and young people have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, gender, disability, culture, language, racial origin, religious belief or sexual identity.
All suspicions and allegations of abuse will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.
