WORLD SQUASH ANTI-DOPING CODE
The World Squash Federation is unequivocally opposed on ethical and medical grounds to the practice of doping in sport and fully supports the position of the International Olympic Committee/World Anti-Doping Agency (IOC/WADA) against the use of banned substances and methods. The use, possession and/or trafficking of banned substances, methods, or the encouragement or counselling to use banned substances, or methods; and/or taking measures to mask the use of banned substances, or methods by any participant in competitions over which the WSF has jurisdiction is unacceptable and will not be tolerated.
The WSF Policy on Doping is motivated by a desire for fair and equal competition among athletes and by concern for the health of athletes participating in such competition. This Policy shall apply to all participants in competitions over which the WSF has jurisdiction and provides for sanctions against any player found guilty of doping offence. All athletes are subject to doping controls (urine analyses, blood tests and other authorised techniques for detecting prohibited substances or methods). It is intended that all participants be subject to year round out-of-competition testing and that the Code not apply solely to in-competition testing.
