General Anti-Doping Information

For the most up to date and relevant Anti-Doping Information, please refer to the Irish Sports Council website.

This provides current information regarding every aspect of Anti-Doping, including Education; Medicines/TUE’s; Testing Procedures; Youth Zone; Available Resources; Coach Specific Information and Contact Details.

Tennis Ireland’s policy is that doping is contrary to the spirit of sport and every member has a duty to ensure that the sport is free of doping.

Once you join Tennis Ireland and enter a competition you are accepting the fact that you could be drug tested.  To reassure parents of younger children, the reality at the moment is that drug testing only occurs at national level events. However all parents should be aware of the possibility of players being tested and what regulations are in operation.

Anti-Doping Worldwide

WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) is the international independant organisation created to promote, co-ordinate and monitor the fight against doping in sport in all its forms since 1999.

Composed and funded equally by the sports movement and Governments of the world, WADA co-ordinated the development and implementation of the World Anti-Doping Code, the document harmonising anti-doping policies in all sports and all countries.
