The England and Wales Cricket Board Visually Impaired (ECB VI) Cricket Squad will be stepping up their preparations for the 2023 season by completing a four (4) day warm weather pre-season training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground and Academy between Tuesday 2nd  – Saturday 6th March 2023.

The ECB VI training camp will comprise nineteen (19) players and eight (8) coaches and staff, all of whom will be 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.

During their stay ECB VI will undertake grass net practice which will take place at the Cricket Academy and internal match simulations on the ICC accredited match ground at Desert Springs Resort. In addition to this strength and conditioning work, running, speed and agility work will be completed at the Cricket Ground and Gym at the Sierras Sports Club.

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.
