The Women’s national team of Cricket Ireland will be stepping up their preparations for the 2022 campaign with a six (6) day Training camp at Desert Springs ICC accredited Cricket Ground & Academy between Thursday 21st – Wednesday 27th April.
Nineteen (19) players and six (6) coaching staff will be involved in a mixture of high performance training, spending their time completing a specific and carefully planned programme of numerous training sessions each day covering technical skills, bowling and batting, strength and conditioning and both individual and group activity.
Grass net practice will take place at the Cricket Academy. Match simulations, strength and conditioning work, running, speed and agility work will be completed at the Cricket Ground and Gym at the Sierras Sports Club.
Desert Springs Group Sales & Marketing Manager Simon Coaker commented;
“Having recently hosted the Men’s National team, to now have the opportunity to host the Women’s National team is a privilege for the resort and testimony to the quality of both the cricket and resort facilities we provide, and we very much look forward to providing them with a warm welcome.”
The players and coaches will be accommodated in some of the privately-owned Apartments and townhouses at Desert Springs and the resort’s executive chef will be on hand to cater for the special dietary requirements of individual players dining in the Crocodile Club Restaurant
