Tennis Guidelines for Dealing with an Incident/Accident


  • Stay calm but act swiftly and observe the situation. Is there any danger of further injuries?

  • Listen to what the injured person is saying.

  • If the injury is minor, alert one of the listed first aiders to take appropriate action.

  • If the injury requires specialist treatment, call the emergency services.

  • If the injury has occurred during a junior group session, ensure the rest of the group are adequately supervised.

  • Do not move someone with major injuries. Wait for the emergency services.

  • Contact the injured person’s parent/carer/relative (as appropriate).

  • Complete an incident/accident report form (copies located next to these guidelines).
