Synopsis of Current Developments: Lawn Sports

  • Matt Carré
Conference paper


The topic of lawn sports could arguably include any sport that is played on natural or synthetic turf, including those as diverse as lawn bowls, tennis and American football. The sports that are included in this section are related to only three: cricket, field hockey and rugby football, as the subject of soccer has generated enough papers to warrant its own section. However, the research areas covered in this section demonstrate the wide variety of expertise applied in the field of sports engineering, including soil mechanics, impact modelling and optimisation, amongst others.
