The Radley and Winchester College team training camp will comprise fourteen (14) players and two (2) staff respectively, all of whom will be spending their time completing numerous training sessions each day, which will include grass net practice, both bowling and batting, strength work, running, speed and agility work. As they will be outside and on grass, the squad will also be able to complete fielding and throwing practice in realistic conditions, as well as compete against one another on the cricket pitch, something not possible indoors back in the UK.

Accommodation for the players and coaches is in some of the privately owned apartments and townhouses at Desert Springs Resort normally reserved for holidays and short breaks 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 Crocodile Club Restaurant.
