This paper provides a descriptive overview of current pre‐participation evaluation practices for professional athletes in the UK. The most prominent conclusion, for what must be deemed to be a practice that should not be compromised in terms of UK health and safety legislation and the management of athlete health, is that there is not 100% adherence and application of these processes. There are potentially a number of practical and scientific reasons that could account for this, but they are not fully investigated within this study and warrant further detailed investigation.
