Sport is an Australian way of life. It brings people together, transcending differences in language, ability, cultures, and beliefs, and provides physical, social, and economic benefits.
Integrity is an essential part of this.
Integrity in sport means that athletes, support persons, and fans can participate and celebrate sport, confident in the knowledge that they are part of a safe, ethical, and inclusive environment.
Badminton Australia takes integrity seriously.
All our members and participants have an obligation to protect and maintain the integrity of sport, as well as the health and wellbeing of our athletes.
We work closely with Sport Integrity Australia (SIA); the federal agency established to prevent and deal with integrity threats in sport. For more information on SIA, or to make a report of:
