Applications are now open for female scientists and coaches to apply for a grant supporting their attendance at the Sports Science Conference: The Science and Practice of Racket Sports for Improved Performance and Health, held in Halmstad, Sweden on April 25-28, 2018.

The conference is supported by the ITTF and the BWF, two international federations joining forces to explore and examine the many interesting mysteries and future opportunities connected to racket sports.

Three topics will be in focus: High Performance, Health and Innovation, and Sport Sciences, and the conference is aiming to foster discussions on interdisciplinary perspectives on health and racket sports.

Keynote speakers will be leading experts in their fields, be it the different racket sports or scientific disciplines, such as sport and exercise psychology, sports pedagogy and sports medicine. World Champion and honorary Doctor at the Halmstad University Jörgen Persson will be joining the conference to lead a technical and tactical development workshop.

The conference will be held in English just prior to the 2018 Liebherr World Team Table Tennis Championships in Halmstad Arena.
