Abstract

Sport,like all industries, is subject to domestic discrimination legislation, which in turn is derived from international treaties. Many sports have also developed internal policies, regulations and/or guidelines to help with the governance of discrimination issues. Netball's rules banning pregnant women from competing were held to be discriminatory and illustrates that guidelines providing recommendations can be a better solution for sports than mandatory rules or regulations.
