At the Centre for Sports Engineering Research at Sheffield Hallam University, the team's work combines cutting edge science and engineering to help test and improve the performance of sports equipment.

The team has tested different types of footballs and can advise which ones work best in different conditions. Their work with high motion camera systems has lead to developments in golf club and ball manufacturing.

In sport such as tennis, the physics of impact testing play a crucial role in analysing the equipment and they've even designed computer models to help study the game.

These methods have proved so effective, that it's lead to a change in the rules of the game.
