The use of compression garments has become common place in many team sports, irrespective of environmental conditions, both in training and matches. Many competitions take place in hot environmental conditions which can impair both intermittent running (Morris et al., 2005, International Journal of Sports Medicine, 26, 805-814) and skill performance (Sunderland & Nevill, 2005, Journal of Sports Sciences, 23, 531-540).Therefore the aim of the research was to ascertain whether wearing compression leggings influenced thermoregulation and performance during simulated team games activity.
