Title: Holland National Team Set To Visit Desert Springs for Pre-Season Warm Weather Cricket Training Camp

Holland, Europe’s strongest cricket nation who have qualified for the T20 World Cup in Australia, are scheduled to complete their pre-season warm weather winter training camp at Desert Springs Resort. 

Holland High Performance Manager Roland Lefebvre, selected Desert Springs Resort as a training venue for the National Women’s squad in 2019, and due to its success is now bringing key senior players from the men’s team to give them invaluable time on grass surfaces outside the regular European season.

Between Monday 9th – Friday 13th March, eight (8) members of the Dutch National squad accompanied by two (2) coaching staff will complete an intensive 4-day training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground & Academy.

The players and coaches will be spending their time completing a specific and carefully planned programme of numerous training sessions each day covering technical skills, fielding drills, bowling and batting, strength and conditioning and both individual and group activity.

Grass net practice, both bowling and batting will take place at the Cricket Academy. Strength and conditioning work, running, speed and agility work will be completed at the Cricket Ground and Gym at the Sierras Sports Club.
