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.
