Lawn Tennis Association Federations Cup 2019 – Security Provisions
SES provide security services for the LTA Federations Cup 2019.
It was with an honour to be requested by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) to provide the security provision for the Fed Cup 2019 – Europe/Africa Zone Group I at the University of Bath this month.
It is the first time that the international women’s team competition is being staged in the UK since 1993 and eight nations, including Great Britain, battled it out for promotion to the World Group II stages. Joining the host nation at the Sports Training Village were Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey.
Team GB won the stage by succeeding in every match, despite some days play extending past midnight.
The staff remained resilient and adaptable to the many changes they faced throughout the tournament. We were responsible for Player Security and Player Movement for all eight nations, this included bag searches. Our Security Provision also had to factor in a planned, 2 day visit by The Duchess of Gloucester.
Well done to everyone involved. It is a proud moment to reflect on our ability to develop and deliver security services for a one-off tournament such as this.
If you need security services for your event, show, business or private matter, The SES Group can help!
