Desert Springs Resort Cricket Manager, Peter Scott commented;

“We are pleased to confirm that spectators are most welcome to attend all matches and admission is FREE, however we must advise that as an official ICC sanctioned event this is strictly on the basis that all spectators follow the clearly defined signage identifying from where they may spectate.

If travelling by car, spectators are requested to park their vehicles within the Golf Club car park and take a leisurely stroll down La Fuente which will lead them to the cricket ground spectators’ area.

We are looking forward to some intense battles between these teams and some great entertainment on our superb cricket ground.”
