The Summer Course in Sports Product Design responds to a need to train design professionals who wish to know more about the urban sports industry, including its scenarios, products, accessories, applied graphics and the strategies for its future development and innovation.

As well as simple physical activity, sports have become a part of our everyday lives and activities, providing numerous benefits to our health. The boom in sports such as running, yoga and fitness is just the start of a major movement.

The culture of sports is evolving and growing, and becoming increasingly visible in the urban context. Both beginners and professionals need equipment to practise their sports. Design can enrich this sector by providing creative, simple, functional, technical and accessible products and services.
