Desert Springs Resort and La Manga Club offer superb facilities for cricket tours and are regularly visited by professional sides for training camps. The facilities are appropriate from Prep schools to the England Cricket team – who we took out to Desert Springs in 2015 for their Pre-Ashes training camp.

Desert Springs boasts mainland Europe’s only resort based grass cricket net facility as shown on the video link opposite. Cricket is a year round activity at Desert Springs due to it being located in the area of Europe’s driest winter climate. Please find a brochure on Desert Springs here.
