Middlesex CCC Academy choose Desert Springs Resort

Middlesex County Cricket Club Academy will be stepping up their preparations for the 2023 season by completing a five (5) day warm weather pre-season training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground and Academy between Thursday 9th – Tuesday 13th February 2023.

Based at Lord’s Cricket Ground, London, Middlesex CCC Academy is responsible for the development of young players to represent Middlesex CCC and England.  The Middlesex CCC Academy training camp will comprise fifteen (15) players and three (3) coaches, 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.  Alongside this Middlesex CCC Academy will play friendly fixtures against their counterparts ‘across the river’, Surrey CCC Academy.

Grass net practice will take place at the Cricket Academy. Match simulations, 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
