Loughborough Sport is proud to have performance sport partnerships with many National Governing Bodies. Our major partners are:
British Triathlon Association
MCC and ECB
Loughborough has been part of the MCC Universities programme since its inception and believe in the philosophy of offering the best environment to excel on and off the sporting field, and the opportunity to obtain a degree which will be valuable whether the dream of professional cricket becomes reality or not.
Around a fifth of all English-qualified players in the county system attended an MCCU, and several current captains (including Andrew Strauss) are graduates.
MCCUs don’t just produce good cricketers, they produce strong leaders and rounded characters – and those traits are important for success both in cricket and the wider working world.
Loughborough also hosts the National Cricket Performance Centre on campus and works closely with the English Cricket Board to provide opportunities for our male and female student-cricketers to experience higher level cricket and coaching through our programmes.
Loughborough has been part of the University Tennis Performance Programme for several years and works closely with the Tennis Foundation to develop a variety of tennis opportunities on campus including the provision of a high quality coaching programme for our top end players. The Tennis Foundation partnership also allows us to employ a student University Tennis Coordinator to develop participation, coaching and volunteering opportunities and two Competition Coordinators to provide high quality player statistic information to the Lawn Tennis Association.
