The National Student Tennis Conference Weekend took place at Loughborough University alongside the BUCS Individual Finals on Saturday 1st – Sunday 2nd April 2017. The conference weekend gave studensts the opportunity to hear from a range of speakers regarding the career pathways available in the sports industry (Saturday 1st April, National Student Tennis Pathways Conference 2017) and also gave both students and coaches the opportunity to see how to utilise sports science in their universities and tennis clubs.
