WADA AntiDoping code


On August 2021, the ITSF officially became a signatory of the WADA Anti-Doping Code. The anti-doping policies are meant to secure the quality of high level competitions and to preserve the players’ health, as well as the integrity of our sport. For those reasons, the ITSF will implements a set of regulations and testing campaigns from January 2022. When submitted its membership to the ITSF, each national federation commits to observe the regulations.

On this page you will find all necessary information related to anti-doping. If you have any questions on this matter, feel free to get in touch with the ITSF Office.

The current list of prohibited substances and methods is displayed on WADA’s website.


Introduction to Anti-Doping:

The use of doping substances or doping methods to enhance performance is fundamentally wrong and is detrimental to the overall spirit of sport. Drug misuse can be harmful to an athlete's health and to other athletes competing in the sport. It severely damages the integrity, image and value of sport, whether or not the motivation to use drugs is to improve performance. To achieve integrity and fairness in sport, a commitment to a clean field of play is critical. The ITSF seeks to maintain the integrity of sport worldwide by running a comprehensive anti-doping program that focuses equally on education/prevention and on testing, with consequent sanctioning of those who break the rules.
