Project Title: Coaching biomechanics interface and effective skill and physical development.

Summary: With tennis players training near physiological maximum identifying the most effective and efficient pathways of skill development and performance enhancement is desirable. Developing initial insights in the coaching knowledge and the conceptual understanding of skill will contribute to this PhD programme. Using coaching knowledge in conjunction with biomechanics and motor control approaches this research will aim to examine the biomechanical determinants of successful performance and explore effective skill and physical development methods in Tennis. Exploring the training principles using biomechanics and motor control theory this project aims to make training more effective efficient and safe. The overall purpose of the research is to gain an insight into the key biomechanical indicators that may be used to develop athlete-centred training programmes in order to improve performance.
