Title: Gibraltar National Cricket Team to visit Desert Springs for Pre-Tournament Training Camp

Gibraltar National Cricket Team will be stepping up their preparations for the Iberia Cup to be held between Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar, by completing a three (3) day pre-tournament training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground & Academy between Monday 21st – Thursday 24th October 2019.

The Gibraltar National Cricket Team is the team that represents the British overseas territory of Gibraltar in international cricket. They have been an associate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) since 1969.

With approximately 30,000 residents, Gibraltar has one of the smallest populations of any ICC member. Only three members, all dependencies of ICC full members, have a smaller population; the Cook Islands, Saint Helenian and the Falkland Islands National teams.

Head Coach, former Yorkshire CCC player Simon Guy, and three additional coaching staff,

will accompany Twenty-Two (22) players for the training camp, all of whom will be spending their time completing numerous training sessions each day.

Grass net practice, both bowling and batting, fielding exercises, running, speed and agility work will be completed at the Cricket Academy. Strength and conditioning work will be completed at the Sierras Sports Club Gym and competitive T20 Matches shall be held at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th October.

Accommodation for the players and coaches is in some of the privately-owned apartments at Desert Springs Resort 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 El Torrente Restaurant.
