In a rather unique move the Halmstad University has signed an agreement with the LIEBHERR World Table Tennis 2018 organisation to become the Official Academic Partner. Part of the agreement is to play host for a two day sport science oriented conference:

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

Three topics will be in focus:
a) High performance,
b) Health and Innovation,
c) Sport sciences.

Thus, we expect the conference to provide an excellent possibility to discuss interdisciplinary perspectives on health and racket sports focusing on keywords such as adapted physical activity, promotion, prevention, treatment and evaluation.

First speaker out is the charismatic Anders Hansen, a licensed physician and medical specialist in psychiatry to speak on the topic of the positive effects of physical training versus brain power. He will be followed by a number of interesting speakers, including the table tennis legend and official WTTC 2018 ambassador Jörgen Persson, diving into the High Performance track.
Please use the following link to read more about the conference and the full program. Registration will open shortly.
