Integrity Campaign

BWF World Junior Championships - Lima, Peru 2015

Fair Play

Every player has the right to compete in “clean sport” and fair competitions. We all have the responsibility to protect the rights of clean and honest players.

The BWF’s “i am” integrity campaign is about players, coaches, managers and administrators and working together to protect our sport from threats like doping, match fixing, illegal betting and corruption.

You can get more information on anti-doping and anti-match fixing programmes from the Integrity pages of the website.

The BWF constitution has a clear message about clean and honest badminton.

“Players at all levels must be able to participate in badminton which is free of drugs, violence, discrimination, technical manipulation, cheating and any form of exploitation in an attempt to win or to manipulate the outcome of a match” (BWF constitution – clause 4.2).

The spirit of sport is the celebration of the human spirit, body and mind, and this is reflected in the values we
find in – and through sport.  These values include:

  • Ethics, fair play and honesty
  • Health
  • Excellence in performance
  • Fun and joy
  • Teamwork
  • Dedication and commitment
  • Respect for rules and laws
  • Respect for self and other Participants
  • Courage
  • Community and solidarity

Every athlete has the right to compete in sport which is free from doping, cheating of any kind and betting to
manipulate the outcome of matches. Everyone has a responsibility to promote fair play.

There are many regulations and policies that relate to the behavior of players, coaches, officials and administrators
in badminton, and everyone needs to be familiar with these and their obligations under these rules – see Players Code of Conduct:

Part III, Section 1B, Appendix 4 – Players Code of Conduct – Major offences for Players. See clauses 6.1, 6.2, 6.3.
