Warwickshire County Cricket Club has unveiled a new partnership with Sutton Coldfield based Quintic Consultancy Limited, to be the Club’s first Official Sports Performance Analysis Partner.
Warwickshire is the first of the 18 First Class counties to install a Quintic six-synchronised high-speed camera system to transform its sports biomechanics & performance analysis capabilities at the club’s Edgbaston Indoor Cricket centre.
Dougie Brown, Director of Cricket at Warwickshire CCC, said: “The partnership with Quintic will ensure we will have the most advanced analysis capabilities in county cricket, which will bring great benefits to the coaching team.
“We’re constantly looking at innovative new products and services that can benefit the Warwickshire squad and potentially enhance performance. The partnership with Quintic is a great example of this and we look forward to working with their team.”
Quintic has installed its equipment in one lane of the Edgbaston Indoor Centre, which will be specifically branded as the Quintic Performance Analysis Lane. The lane will be used by Warwickshire players of all levels and key aspects of their game analysed using six synchronised cameras. Trained members of the Club’s Coaching team will use this information to help enhance performance and help minimise injury.
Teams and Players of all abilities will be able to have their own action analysed by specially trained staff at Warwickshire’s Indoor Cricket School. In the near future the club is hoping to offer this unique facility to its affiliated cricket clubs, and other sport organisations.
Dr Paul Hurrion, Managing Director at Quintic (www.quintic.com), said: We have specialised in the field of Biomechanics Analysis Software and Sports Biomechanics Consultancy for nearly 20 years and work with a wide range of sporting and none sporting organisations. We are proud of our strong and long standing relationships with all our Cricketing Clients with many aspects of our software being designed to meet their specific analysis requirements – clients include the International Cricket Council, England and Wales Cricket Board and many World and County Teams.
“Our new partnership with Warwickshire is the first of its kind and we’re thrilled to be working with one of the leading county cricket clubs in the country to help take the biomechanical analysis of all aspects of their game to the next level.”
"Quintic is a fantastic resource for Warwickshire County Cricket Club. Having access to six high-speed synchronised cameras allows us to comprehensively analyse and monitor a range of biomechanical and technical factors for batting, bowling and fielding. Quintic is an easy to use system that helps to identify and measure any issues relating to injury prevention and performance.
Our bowling coach Alan Richardson has already been a big user of the system, testing and profiling all of the clubs' bowlers. "Quintic has already been an essential tool towards gaining a better understanding of the mechanics of all of our bowlers and their bowling actions". The club has further plans to use Quintic within the sports science and medicine department to enhance both physical performance, through the assessment of Olympic lifting techniques, and to provide vital information on injured players in a bid to reduce and minimise injuries and optimise the rehabilitation process.
Quintic will also be extensively used within the academy and emerging players programmes to help educate our young players on both technical and biomechanical factors that could enhance performance."
