Weighing up Coventry Rugby Club players

Weighing up the players at Coventry Rugby has become a whole lot easier this season, thanks to a donation from Coventry Scale Company Ltd.

The company, who supplies industrial weighing equipment, has provided the national league one club with a medical weighing scale, which the coaching team are using weekly, to check the fitness levels of the squad.
Tom Marren from Coventry Scale Company Ltd, said: “We’re proud to sponsor Coventry Rugby and donating the scale to assist with the strength and conditioning of the squad seemed like a natural link.”

It’s important to weigh the players, before and after games, to monitor hydration levels and ensure that weight lost during the game can then be replaced with fluids. In addition, with this scale the club is able to measure the players’ height, body mass index, and even bone density.

Tom added: “Having followed the club for many years and played grassroots rugby myself in the city, we’re looking forward to supporting the club throughout what is turning out to be an exciting season.”

In addition to medical scales, Coventry Scale Company Ltd provides industrial weighing solutions for a number of industries including automotive, food production, agriculture, laboratory and logistics.
