ITF Worldwide Participation Conference 2018


The inaugural ‘ITF Worldwide Participation Conference 2018’ will take place in London on Sunday 08 July 2018 (full-day) and Monday 09 July 2018 (half-day). The event, which will aim to create a global conversation for increasing participation in tennis and sport, will be hosted at Chelsea Football Club Stamford Bridge stadium in London, UK.

The Conference, which will bring together leading international experts from their respective fields, will provide an interactive and modern forum for discussing ideas on how to increase participation - both in tennis and in sport more generally. The ITF is excited to welcome over 200 delegates from around the world to London, in particular colleagues with responsibility for growing tennis from within our member National Associations, as well as representatives from non-tennis Federations, from industry and others who have expertise in widening participation in sport.

The Conference programme is currently being finalised, however a variety of topics will form the two-day schedule: from increasing female participation in sport; the strategies for growth and retention in sports participation; the health benefits and well-being in tennis and sport; to the use of technology in the sport participation and using data to measure the impact of initiatives.
