James Pipe is Nottinghamshire’s Head of Science and Medicine; a position that includes primary Physiotherapy duties for the professional squad.

He joined the Nottinghamshire coaching staff in late 2016, after moving from local rivals Derbyshire.

Bradford-born, Pipe’s playing career began with Worcestershire, making his first team debut in 1998. Over the course of seven seasons at New Road the right-handed batsman-wicketkeeper made 31 first class appearances, completing 88 dismissals and registering the first of his four career centuries.

With the impressive Steve Rhodes barring his way to regular involvement Pipe moved to Derbyshire in 2006 and he made 125 first team appearances across the three formats, twice making a top career score of 133 with the bat.
