Best Technology for Women’s Sport Performance
This celebrates technology which enables female athletes or their managers and coaches to be more effective in improving performance.
Judges will review entries on the following criteria
- What is the market for this technology
- What need does the entry meet and how does it do so effectively
- To what degree is the technology unique and innovative or, where there is competing technology, how is the entry’s technology superior (e.g. easier to use, more accessible, more rigorous etc.)
- How robust is the technology as a business proposition (e.g. how scalable is the tech, what is its potential for growth and to what degree can it disrupt the existing market)
- Quantitative and qualitative data supporting the entry (e.g. stats and third-party endorsements)

If you are interested in entering the ‘Best Technology for Women’s Sport Performance’ category here’s some more information on why it has been included in this year’s Sports Technology Awards.
It is an indisputable fact that biochemistry and physiology make women far more susceptible to sports injuries than men, so whilst we live in an era of exciting, positive changes for professional female athletes, they indisputably face unequal terms when it comes to basic biology. This is where sports technology can play a hugely important role in injury prevention, training planning and performance rehabilitation of elite sportswomen.
It is great to see technology, such as – period trackers and improved materials for breast support start to become more common in the market – and the STA Group’s network of female athletes report that they are really valued – but there is a still a long way to go.
With more studies revealing the physical vulnerabilities professional sportswomen face (not that this will stop them competing and nor should it) the higher the demand will be for technology that protects and supports women sports stars.
‘Best Technology for Women’s Sport Performance’ is a new category but our judges will relish the chance to see innovative sports technology developments happening in this sector.
The importance of the technology emerging in this area of sports performance should not be underestimated, as such, we are delighted to play our part in highlighting the excellent work that is being done currently at the Sports Technology Awards ceremony in 2020.
