Racket Congress

The 6th World Congress of Racket Sport Science was held in Bangkok, Thailand.  The congress began on Friday morning 25th May and finished on Saturday evening on the 26th May 2018. It was jointly organised by the Badminton Association of Thailand, Mahidol University and Badminton World Federation, and supported by the International Tennis Federation and the International Table Tennis Federation.

The congress provided a forum for participants to update their knowledge and explore innovations in sport science which substantially influence the present and future of competitive racket sports. It also offered a platform for networking, providing 150 participants from over 30 countries with the opportunity to interact with leading scientists, researchers, and other innovators in this field.
