Prohibited List



Samples collected under the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme are analysed for Prohibited Substances and Prohibited Methods in accordance with the prevailing version of the WADA Prohibited List (shown in pdf format below).

A summary of changes to the current list from the previous version is also provided.

If a player has a condition that requires the use of a substance or method that is on the Prohibited List, a Therapeutic Use Exemption – commonly known as a TUE – is required.  A TUE permits a player to use the Prohibited Substance or Prohibited Method without committing an Anti-Doping Rule Violation, providing that all such use is in accordance with the conditions of the TUE. 

All applications for a TUE must be made online through the Tennis Anti-Doping Programme TUE Portal, details of which can be found here. The portal enables players and their physicians to monitor the real-time status of their applications.

To check whether a medication or supplement contains a Prohibited Substance, complete the Product Information Request form on the Tennis Anti-Doping app, free to download onto Android (Google play) and Apple (App Store) devices.  Requests for information on pharmaceutical products are processed 7 days a week during office hours, and are  normally returned within 24 hours, unless the request is for a large number of products and/or ingredients, in which case processing may take up to 72 hours or more in exceptional circumstances.
