Testimonials from our last conference
Josh Crossley, Tennis Coach
"RacketEdge managed to organise some fantastic speakers which had both practical/theory elements to them. Each speaker had a purpose and an aim for the coaches to takeaway and it was great being able to go back through my notes and reflect on how these aims can be implemented into my own coaching/team.
I would definitely recommend this to other tennis/strength and conditioning coaches looking to further there knowledge in a variety of fields and be able to interact with other coaches from all over the country".
''The RacketEdge Conference was an excellent combination of both presentations and practical sessions from experts in the field. The diverse knowledge shared by the practitioners presenting enabled me to take home ideas which will help me grow as a practitioner.
There was a common theme around practitioner development and self reflection and I am sure every delegate went home and reflected on their current practice. It was exciting that so many ideas were shared and discussed and I am certainly looking forward to the next conference".
