Tattersalls Committee

Tattersalls Committee is a historic body which dates back to 1886. Today, it has two main functions – firstly, to provide an independent dispute resolution service where there is a disagreement between backer and bookmaker over the returns on a bet and, secondly, to set the Tattersalls Committee Rules on Betting, by which on-course bookmakers must abide (unless otherwise stated) and which originally formed the basis of many of the rules used by High Street and internet bookmakers.

If you have a betting dispute that cannot be resolved directly between yourself and your on-course bookmaker, Tattersalls Committee is available to adjudicate on the dispute. An adjudication form may be downloaded using the ‘Forms’ tab at the top of this page. You can use the other tabs to find out more about the Committee's  role and responsibilities.

The Gambling Commission (which is Britain's 'Competent Authority') has appointed Tattersalls Committee as an approved provider for the purposes of the Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes (Competent Authorites and Information) Regulations 2015.
