TENNIS AUSTRALIA ANTI-DOPING POLICY
Tennis Australia is a co-signatory and partial founder of the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme (TADP), which applies to all players competing at Grand Slam tournaments and events sanctioned by the ITF, ATP and WTA.
In addition to the TADP, the Tennis Australia Anti-Doping Policy was adopted to ensure the eradication of doping in tennis in Australia which is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of the sport.

The majority of States/Territories in Australia have mandatory legislation requiring tennis coaches to undergo a screening process in order to work with children (under 18 years of age). Tennis Australia is committed to helping coaches to adhere to the requirements.
A current Working With Children Check (WWCC) is an essential prerequisite for active coach membership with TA.
There is no national screening system or national standards regarding WWCC and related clearances. Each State/Territory Government has its own legislation. It is necessary to fulfil the requirements in each State/Territory in which you are working. Please refer below for specific local requirements (subject to change and it is the responsibility of each tennis coach to ensure that he/she complies with current State/Territory legislation).
Also note the following if you are moving between States/Territories and intend to engage in child-related work:
- If your working with children activity is likely to take place over ten or more consecutive days, a WWCC for your destination State/Territory should be strongly considered (though the requirements vary depending on the destination and it is the responsibility of each tennis coach to ensure that he/she complies with current State/Territory legislation); and
- If the move is permanent, a WWC clearance for the destination State/Territory should certainly be obtained.
