Open to the public, Lord's is only place in the world where budding, amateur or novice cricketers can access HawkEye as a cricket training tool, the same technology used by county and international stars.

The HawkEye software can accurately pinpoint the speed, line and length of each delivery bowled. At the end of an Analysis Suite session budding cricketers can take away a free video of their performance. They can view a graphical HawkEye breakdown of their statistics in the Analysis Suite - and for just £15 take the full stats package home complete with full Hawk-Eye animations.

- See how fast you bowl
- Watch each delivery back in 'Virtual Reality'
- Measure how far you are turning the ball through spin, seam or swing
​- View 'beehive' formations marking where each delivery meets the batsman.

All mapped onto the 'Virtual Lord's'  to show your deliveries on the famous Home of Cricket.

Pitch Vision allows coaches to offer instant in-net analysis of a player's performance.

See instant replays of your performance on a laptop and gain more from your coaching session at Lord's.

All video is then available to view, upon registration, from the PitchVision website.
