The Club’s welfare officer is Kelly Rowland
Kelly has been a member at our club for 23 years. She took on the role of Welfare Officer in 2018.
During her time at the club she has helped to coach and support the junior section for a number of years and can always be found on Friday junior nights at the club. She has two boys of her own who both play tennis with Purley Bury now and her family are big supporters of the club and it’s ethos.
She has been playing for the Ladies teams for over 20 years and has taken on this role because she knows that it is important for players of all ages to enjoy the game and not have any reason to feel at threat whilst doing so. She is also a teaching assistant and has therefore developed an excellent set of skills working with young people and adults.
It is Kelly’s job to make sure that all children, young people and adults at risk are safe when at our club. She is responsible for promoting safeguarding within our venue and working with others to ensure a safe and inclusive environment is achieved. You can speak to Kelly if you are concerned or unhappy about something.
