Tennis Australia Anti-Doping Policy

In 2004 at the French Open, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) launched an anti-doping campaign in association with the Grand Slams. The purpose of the campaign was to warn the elite players of the dangers associated with the consumption of dietary supplements. The document below (PDF) is Tennis Australia’s Anti-Doping Policy.

Code of behaviour

The new Code of behaviour replaces the ‘Events Disciplinary Policy’ that regulates behaviour breaches related to and during tournaments and weekly competitions in Australia. We are committed to protecting the integrity of tennis and ensuring we provide a healthy and positive environment for players to compete in. Improving the behaviour of players and spectators at tournaments and competitions is a major element of this.
