The philosophy behind organizing the regional conferences is to regionalize a useful short program to refresh the coaches’ knowledge and familiarize them with the new concepts in coaching.

Another aim is bringing the coaches of a region together and letting them exchange their experience, thoughts and technical initiatives.

This year, for the 1st time ITF/ATF regional conference will be organized for coaches from West & Central Asia in Tehran, Iran. The 3 day conference from 15th to 17th of October, would cover a variety of tennis coaching subjects presented by some world-known speakers.
