Biomechanics of throwing

ByRoger Bartlett, Matthew Robins

This chapter focuses on those sports or events in which the participant throws, passes, bowls or shoots an object from the hand. The similarities between these activities and striking skills – such as the tennis serve – make much of the research into the latter also relevant to applied work in throwing, but these skills will not be covered explicitly in this chapter.
