NOTTINGHAM RFC EYES UP THE 2010/2011 SEASON
Experts in sport vision, the discipline dedicated to improving athletes’ eyesight to enhance sporting performance, Gavin (Sports-Vision Services), and Edward (Sports Sight) were brought in to advise and help Michelle (Park Vision) to assess and train the players’ visual systems to help maximise performance on the rugby field this season.
