Jake Ball – Cricketer

Notts and England Fast Bowler, Jake Ball burst onto the International scene in 2016 by making his Test debut at Lords against Pakistan and then taking 5 wickets on his ODI debut later in the year against Bangladesh in a match winning performance in tough conditions.

Just ahead of The Ashes 2017 in Australia, Proskins Ambassador and England Fast Bowler Jake Ball talks about why fitness and recovery are a vital part of being a professional sportsman and how easily it can all be taken away.

Jake Ball – Proskins Ambassador

Proskins are delighted to have Jake on board as he is an athlete on the upward curve in his career and someone who has loved and believed in the products for a number of years.

“I have used Proskins products since I was  15 years old and always enjoyed the benefits so it is great to get involved with the brand even further. Since making the step up onto the county and international circuit the demand on your body increases and even more important that you help your body recover quickly. Wearing compression garments such as the Recovery Leggings post exercise help me to be fresher and in better shape to strap on the bowling boots the next morning.”
