Composites in sport 2016

Sports, Leisure & Recreation
France, Loughborough University, UK

NetComposites launches a brand new, one-day conference spotlighting the current and future use of composite materials in sport. The conference will incorporate demonstrations of state-of-the-art equipment and bespoke test rigs at the Sports Technology Institute.

Sporting success is often the result of marginal advantages, whether that is in terms of the individual competitor, their training regime, or the equipment they employ. In pursuit of these marginal advantages, composites are now the material of choice for many sporting goods where their benefits in terms of high stiffness, low weight, protection and customisation are enjoyed by elite athletes and enthusiastic amateurs alike.

Composites in Sport will explore new composite material developments in sports-related applications including equipment, safety wear, apparel, prosthetics and infrastructure. It is aimed at material developers/suppliers, manufacturers, researchers, regulatory bodies and athletes of all abilities.

Composites in Sport will cover topics such as:

  • New material developments for sporting competitive advantage
  • Testing and certification of composite sporting goods
  • Sporting infrastructure and facilities
  • Case studies of performance-enhancing composites in sport
  • Manufacturing composite sporting goods for consumer mass markets

The event will take place on 16 nevember in Holywell Park Conference Centre, Loughborough University, UK.
