Everything you need to know
Important information about the TADP
What could go wrong?
If players do not follow the rules they can face a lengthy ban from all sport. Players should be fully aware of the rules, especially the doping control procedures including their rights and responsibilities.
What is Banned?
The list of banned substances and methods is updated annually by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)
It is the responsibility of players to be aware of what medicine they are taking and to ensure they are seeking and receiving appropriate medical advice.
Supplements should be treated with caution as these can be contaminated and be the cause of inadvertent doping offences
The testing process
WADA video about what happens when a player is tested both at an event or out of competition.
Some tennis players are required to provide information about where they can be found for testing at any time as part of the worldwide “Whereabouts” system.
If you think you’ve seen or heard something suspicious regarding either doping or match fixing, please report it to us. Even if it turns out to be nothing, it’s the right thing to do and keeps the sport fair.
