This section concerns the medical personnel and facilities required at the event.

It is important that everybody involved in the event, most importantly the players, has access to medical support in case of injuries or illness. The medical staff should ideally also be able to give advice on taking suitable medicines that are not on the WADA list of banned substances.

1. The doctor

A doctor must be available at all times during play. The doctor should liaise with the Referees to understand the requirements in the hall. The doctor should have access to a medical examination room close to the courts.

2. Physiotherapist

A physiotherapist should be available from shortly before matches start until after each session’s end of play. The physiotherapist should have access to a room close to the courts where a massage bench should be available.
