We are pleased to announce that England Cricket have just returned from their pre-Ashes training camp in Desert Springs, southern Spain, organised by us at Sporta Tours. Take a look at our picture gallery by clicking here.

The team visited for four days, with the objectives being training for the upcoming Ashes Test series, and getting to know the new coach, Trevor Bayliss. Whilst there were fielding drills, meetings, and fitness work, the trip was also an opportunity to spend time together as a squad with golf and                                                                                  cycling.Cycling 1

In light of this trip, we would like to make you aware that opportunities are available to schools down in Desert Springs; it isn’t just for professional teams, it’s also available and affordable for schools.  We can arrange 4 night/5 day training camps on a full-board basis, including flights, from £595 per person.

This price is based on 16 boys travelling with 2 free of charge staff.  Included in this price, you will have access to the same facilities that England Cricket, Yorkshire, Somerset and Sussex County Cricket Clubs                                                                                   amongst others have used. This includes the grass wickets, training pitch,                                                                             and the gym.
