Sydney Sixers and Sydney Thunder Women’s teams will both tour the UAE for a training camp during June 2016, hosted by Sporta Tours.
The training will take place at the world class ICC Global Cricket Academy in Dubai, and the tour will also feature a T20 match between the two sides at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Sunday 5th June.
Whilst on tour, both sides are keen to promote Women’s cricket in the UAE. To this end, journalists are invited to two open sessions for taking photos and conducting one-on-one interviews. The UAE Women’s Cricket Team as well as local school children have been invited to these sessions too to train and meet with the Sydney teams respectively.
“We’re delighted to be hosting the first Big Bash franchise tour to the UAE”, said Matthew Jackson, Managing Director of Sporta Tours.
“Our professional team clients, including England, New Zealand and Counties, have chosen the UAE as their tour destination for a number of years now. It’s testimony to our work over the past ten years as the premier sports tour operator in the region, and to the quality of facilities in the UAE, that we are hosting teams from all over the world”.
