Bowls Australia (BA) is a firm believer in pure performance in sport, otherwise known as anti-doping.

BA condemns doping as fundamentally contrary to the spirit of sport.

Anti-doping programs seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable about sport.  The essence of sport at all levels in Australia upholds the principles of fairness, respect, responsibility and safety.

  • Anti-doping Policy: Bowls Australia’s Anti-Doping Policy is the Australian National Anti-Doping Policy, effective from January 1, 2021, and found here on the Sport Integrity Australia website. All members, participants and non-participants in the sport of Bowls are bound by these rules.

The purpose of the BA anti-doping policy and the anti-doping programs which it supports are:

  • To protect athletes’ fundamental right to participate in doping-free sport and thus promote health, fairness and equality for Athletes worldwide; and
  • To ensure harmonised, coordinated and effective anti-doping programs at the international and national level with regard to detection, deterrence and prevention of doping.
