FIR Global Online Workshop for Development & Growth of Racketlon
A few weeks ago an invitation was sent to all FIR member countries to invite them to join a unique online workshop hosted by the FIR which aims to help grow and develop Racketlon in their countries – please make sure your country joins this event! All details are below…
On Sat 11th July between 14.00 and 16.30 (Central European Time: CET) – the FIR will be running an online workshop for all of its member countries (as well as those countries who are intending to apply for FIR membership in 2020).
The aim of the workshop is to share very valuable ideas and information to help countries develop and grow Racketlon in their countries – we have asked a variety of different speakers to present ideas in 6 main areas:
Response to coronavirus
Using Social Media to raise awareness and find players
Applying for sponsorship and funding
Negotiating with venues and hosting world tour tournaments
National membership structures and national tournaments
Junior development including Racketlon in Universities
But a key part of the workshop will be for countries to speak to, create relationships and learn from each other.
All of our member countries are at different stages of development and all have different challenges and opportunities – however there is still a huge amount that can still be learned from each other.
Even our ‘newest’ countries could still present fresh ideas and new ways of thinking that our more developed Racketlon countries could use and learn from.
Member countries from across the world such as the USA, UK, Finland, India, Switzerland, Austria and Australia have all already confirmed their attendence, and the FIR are very keen that all of our member countries participate in the workshop. Each country can invite as many of their board, advisors or players as they like to attend.
Please make sure that your country is represented on 11th July – the more voices we can hear from the better it will be for the global development of Racketlon.
The workshop will be hosted via Zoom – at 14.00 (CET) on 11th July, please click on this link: FIR Global Racketlon Workshop Link OR use Meeting ID: 854 8099 7818
