Title: Sharks Cricket Club select Desert Springs for pre-season warm weather cricket training camp

Between Thursday 5th – Monday 9th March, The Sharks Cricket Club will complete a four (4)-day warm weather training camp at Desert Springs Resort in preparation for the forthcoming season.

Since 1995, ex-professional cricket players from a range of countries, including India, Pakistan and England, have banded together during the winter to form The Sharks CC.
Over the years, the Sharks have evolved into an Academy where players are hand-picked to join the Club and compete in matches against Premier League teams.

The Sharks CC training camp will comprise sixteen (16) talented ex-professional cricketers, all of whom 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 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 and The Sharks CC shall compete in competitive T20 matches at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground against cricket Germany and the Pinatar Pirates on Saturday 7th March.
