The team training camp will comprise sixteen (16) players all of whom will be spending their time completing numerous training sessions each day, accompanied by two (2) coaching staff.

Grass net practice, both bowling and batting, strength and conditioning work, running, speed, fielding and agility work will take place at the Cricket Academy. The culmination of the camp will see Bedford School compete in a quadrangular T20 Tournament against Shiplake, Winchester and Radley College at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground on Thursday 18th, Friday 19th and Saturday 20th April.

Accommodation for the players and coaches is in some of the privately-owned apartments at Desert Springs Resort normally reserved for holidays and short breaks and the resort’s executive chef will be on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining in the resort’s Crocodile Club Restaurant.
