Anti-Doping Rules

Anti-Doping Rules

All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean.

GB Badminton and Badminton England believe in clean ‘badminton’ and work in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and our International Federation to ensure that the integrity of our sport is protected.

The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.
