As part of the MCCU programme, members get access to the best Physiotherapy, Sports Medicine and Sports Science support services. The Chief Physiotherapist and her team work closely with the squad, who are physiologically screened for injury prevention purposes, assisted with individualised strength and fitness development programmes, and treated for injuries when necessary, through the easy to access on-site clinic close to the cricket facilities.
Loughborough’s advanced Sports Science research facilities are utilised by ECB and other Cricket bodies for the benefit of Cricket generally. While the science behind the expertise needn’t worry the players, MCCU members benefit from technical analysis of cricket actions. Coaches use the Quintic system to analyse players individually, and Hawk-eye technology is being installed in the new indoor centre to supplement this process.
