SPLISS Tennis (2010-2013)

Tennis as a case study in Australia and Belgium

SPLISS tennis started in January 2010. The project is coordinated by Jessie Brouwers, a PhD student at Bond University (Australia) in cooperation with the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.


This study aims to develop a model to determine, measure and compare the policy factors leading to international success in tennis of different nations. This way we can examine the relationship between sport policy in tennis and international tennis success. The objective is to inform policy makers, researchers and high performance directors in tennis about international policy development in tennis.
