Testing & Whereabouts

Testing:

UK Anti-Doping and the ITF conduct drug testing both in competition (post match) and out of competition (at training sessions and at player’s homes or accommodation). Players can be selected at any time for a drug test on either a random or a targeted basis.

Players are tested for the prohibited substances contained within Anti-Doping Regulations via the collection of blood and urine samples. All tests are collected by Doping Control Officers (DCO) and Chaperones, who are accredited to World Anti-Doping Code (WADC) standards, and samples are analysed at World WADA-accredited laboratories.

Whereabouts:

Individual players who are selected for inclusion in a testing pool are required to submit details of their whereabouts using the Anti-Doping Administration & Management System (ADAMS). You will be notified individually of your inclusion in one of these pools.

You can make changes to your Whereabouts Filings up to one minute before the specified 1 hour "testing slot" commences and there are a number of ways this can be done:

  • Visit the ADAMS website
  • Download the ADAMS App from the App Store
