The Prohibited List details all those substances and methods that are prohibited for use in sport. It is set by The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and is updated on the 1 January each year.

The list is divided into categories and identifies those substances that are prohibited all of the time (in-competition and out-of-competition), and those that are only prohibited during a competition (in-competition only). For tennis players in-competition it is usually from 00:01 of the day of their first match to 60 minutes after the player’s last match of that competition.

The Prohibited List can be accessed via the WADA website.

Please be aware the 2021 Prohibited List, which is in force from 1 January 2021 has been updated and contains some changes. Read a summary of changes to the List.
