Match Point project partners meet in Slovenia
Partners of the Erasmus+-funded project Match Point met for the transnational project’s second meeting in Ljubljana, Slovenia on December 2, as the two-year project continues to progress.
The general objective of the project is to combat doping in recreational environments through the establishment of a transnational network and creation of engaging, deterring and detecting educational programmes and innovative open resource online educational courses that will lead to the development of an Ethical Code for behaviour in tennis and grassroots sports.
The 24-month project aims to positively influence young non-professional tennis athletes’ and coaches’ culture and attitudes against doping, protecting their health and moral ethics and supporting the integrity of sports as well as its positive values and principles.
In the project’s second meeting, partners discussed the project’s timeline, work packages and activities while planning for the forthcoming targets throughout the second year of the project.
The next meeting will be held in Vienna, Austria in January 2020.
Match Point is led by the Bulgarian Tennis Federation (BUL), partnering with the Polish Tennis Federation (POL) and Romanian Tennis Federation (ROU) as tennis governing bodies, University of Vienna and Austrian institute for Sport Medicine (AUT) as a research partner and EUSA Institute (SLO) as European Non-Governmental organisation.
The project is co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union as a collaborative partnership, and will last for two years, between January 2019 and December 2020.
