Anti-Doping

Position Statement

All athletes have the right to compete in sport knowing that they, and their competitors, are clean. The use of performance-enhancing drugs and other doping behaviour severely damages the legitimacy of sport and undermines the integrity of clean athletes.

The BBL condemns, and is totally opposed to, the use of performance enhancing drugs and doping practices in the sport of basketball and fully supports the position of the International Olympic Committee, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), UK Anti-Doping, FIBA, and the BBF against the use of banned substances and methods.

The BBL operates under license from the British Basketball Federation and follows its policies regarding Anti-Doping, which can be found HERE.

All BBL and WBBL players are licensed through Basketball England, which is part of UK Anti-Doping. This means ALL players competing in the BBL/WBBL Competitions may be subjected to Drug Testing by UKAD at any time during the season. Their Anti-Doping procedures can be found HERE.
