We hereby take the liberty of addressing you with an event organized by the International Association of Tennis Journalists AITJ. The World Championship of Tennis Journalists have been successfully organized continuously since 1978, with one exception in 2020 due to the global pandemic situation. This year, we would like to make this event more attractive by organizing a conference of sports journalists and editors, where our lecturers from the field of physiotherapy, sports medicine, sports management, sports marketing and the media would discuss current issues related not only to athletes, but to the entire background of sports.
This unique sports story is the realization of the collaboration between Ivan Ljubičić and the Lošinj Hotels & Villas brand with the aim of gathering professional players, but also tennis enthusiasts and active amateurs, as well as all those who simply want to experience sports activities on a unique island vitality known for its many natural properties and healing Mediterranean air.
The 45th World Championship of tennis journalists and media workers is organized in cooperation with the academy and therefore we hope that it will be interesting for all participants to meet personally with the work of this former professional tennis player.
The playing days will be September 18 - 23, 2023, daily from 8:30 (a.m.) to the end of the drawn matches, with one day set aside for relaxation with a free program that will be determined on site depending on the weather.
The drawing of matchups will take place on September 17, 2023 at 20:00 (8:00 PM) in the presence of the captains of the individual expeditions. The results of the day´s matches and the following day matchups will be posted at the hotel reception bulletin board no later than 23:00. (11:00 PM)
There are 14 tennis courts (clay surface) available at the Vitality Punta resort, which ensure the smooth running of the tournament. The playing system is for two winning sets, in a case of a set draw (1:1), the winning super tie break is played up to 10. The organizer reserves the right, after agreement with the head referee, to introduce the NO AD system in the first rounds in the event of a match.
Lectures at the conference will be spread over three days on September 18, 19, 21, and possibly also 22, 2023, in the event that they do not have time to cover all assigned topics during the first three dates. The lectures will be interactive so that the participants can participate in the discussion of the given issue. They will take place between 9.30-13.30 (9:30 AM - 1:30 PM), so that the participants can rest enough and enjoy all the advantages of the resort.
