Our Clean Sport Commitment

All sporting participants have the right to compete in Clean Sport.

The University of Nottingham adopts the UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) and World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) position that cheating, including doping, in sport is fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport, undermining the otherwise positive impact of sport on society.

  • All athletes are expected to play, train and compete in line with the spirit of sport, including the Anti-Doping rules. 
  • All coaches and athlete support personnel are expected to perform their role in line with the spirit of sport, including the Anti-Doping rules. 
  • The University of Nottingham is committed to supporting the prevention of doping behaviour in the UK in collaboration with other sporting bodies
  • Employed and associated ‘staff’ will not condone, assist or in any way support the use of prohibited substances and methods (unless permitted by a Therapeutic Use Exemption) in any aspects of their work. 
  • Breaches of this, or any rules/policies referred to in University of Nottingham Sports's own code of practice/conduct will be acted upon accordingly. 
  • All employed and associated staff will be expected to contact UK Anti-Doping should they become aware of an athlete or NGB member using or considering the usage of a prohibited substance or prohibited method.
