Safeguarding requirements

Child Welfare

The Padel Federation of Ireland has adopted and implemented the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport as set out by the Sports Council of Ireland as an integral part of club policy on children and club membership.

Upon joining the Club or renewal of annual membership, all members agree to abide by the Code of Conduct and the club’s Child Protection Policy. These codes and policies are set out below, and all members and their children should read and become familiar with them.

The Club Child Protection Officers are available should any member have any questions or require any assistance in relation to child protection in any padel club. The Child Protection Officer for the Padel Federation of Ireland can be contacted at
