The Science and Practice of Racket Sport for Improved performance and Health:
Special Focus on Table Tennis,
April 25–27, 2018

This Conference is a great possibility to discuss interdisciplinary perspectives on health and racket sports focusing on areas such as adapted physical activity, promotion, prevention, treatment and evaluation.

Three main topics will be in focus:

  • High performance
  • Health and Innovation
  • Sports science

A blend of leading expert keynote speakers representing the Nordic countries, as well as international well-known speakers and experts in the field representing different racket sports and disciplines such as sports and exercise psychology, sports pedagogics, sports medicine and other scientific disciplines. This will stimulate critical thinking and provide the basis for enhanced discussions about sports science and racket sports.

The conference will be held in English and takes place a few days prior to the LIEBHERR World Team Table Tennis Championships in Halmstad Arena on April 29 to May 6, 2018.
