Sports Tribunal of New Zealand

The Sports Tribunal of New Zealand

The Sports Tribunal is an independent body that determines certain types of disputes for the sports sector.

The aim of the Tribunal is to ensure that national sport organisations and other parties to a sports dispute, such as athletes, have access to an affordable, just and speedy means of resolving a sports dispute.

The Sports Anti-Doping Act 2006 sets out the sorts of disputes the Tribunal can hear.  The main types of disputes the Tribunal hears are: 

  •  anti-doping violations
  • appeals against decisions of National Sport Organsations or the New Zealand Olympic Committee - mostly appeals against disciplinary decisions or not being selected for a New Zealand team
  • other sports related disputes referred by agreement of all the parties

Full details can be found on the Sports Tribunal of New Zealand website:
