Awareness and education is important in the fight against doping, match fixing, illegal betting and corruption in sport. You can access anti-doping education and awareness programme and access information formation from these organisations:
- Badminton World Federation (BWF)
- World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)
- Your National Badminton Federation
- Your National Anti-Doping Organisation
Each National Badminton Associations is responsible for implementing their own education programme. This should be supported by their National Anti-doping Organisation (NADO).
The below provides some ready-to-use resources from various sources.
The “i am badminton” integrity campaign is about players, coaches, technical officials and administrators working together to protect our sport from threats like doping, match manipulation, match fixing, illegal betting and corruption.
The campaign aims to raise awareness of 1) good sports values, 2) the rules and regulations around the ethics of sport and 3) the consequences of breaching the rules. The Anti-Match Fixing part of the website has a range of resources available for National Badminton Federations to download and use to plan and deliver an integrity awareness campaign. This includes 1) artwork of campaign logos, roll up banners, backdrops, posters of campaign ambassadors; 2) model plans to guide trainers; and 3) images of “i am badminton” activation since 2015. In 2020, BWF announced eight new Integrity Ambassadors.
The World Anti-Doping Agency has a wide range of resources for athletes, coaches, trainers and administrators including – WADA Video Materials, Educational Resources – Education and Prevention Tools, and Anti-Doping Education and Learning platform (ADEL)
