Anti Doping

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

Wales Golf believe in clean sport and work in partnership with UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and our International Federation (IF) to ensure that the integrity of our sport is protected.

UKAD is responsible for making sure sports bodies in the UK are compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency Code (WADA Code). It does this by implementing the UK’s National Anti-Doping Policy.

Wales Golf has implemented and supports the UKAD policy which provides clear information and guidelines on doping in sport in the UK.

All [licensed persons / members / registered persons] shall be deemed to have made him/herself familiar with, and agreed to be bound by [the UK Anti-Doping Rules/Anti-Doping Rules of the NGB] and to submit to the authority of UK Anti-Doping in the application and enforcement of [the Anti-Doping Rules].

[The UK Anti-Doping Rules/ Anti-Doping Rules of the NGB] apply to all persons licensed (whether permanently, provisionally, temporarily or otherwise) to participate in golf, for whichever is the longer of a) the length of the licence period; or b) 12 months from the date of issue of the licence, in accordance with Wales Golf General terms of Competition [whether or not the licence holder is a citizen of, or resident in, the UK].

On the download link below you will find further information on the rules, medication, testing and how you can help protect your sport.

Please do not hesitate to ask questions about the anti-doping rules. As well as asking Wales Golf and athlete support personnel, athletes may also contact UKAD directly, who will be able to answer any questions and provide guidance. They can be contacted at ukad@ukad.org.uk or +44 (0) 207 842 3450.
