Shiplake College Cricket Club set to visit Desert Springs Resort for Training Camp



Between Wednesday 17th – Sunday 21st April, Shiplake College Cricket Club will be stepping up their preparations for the 2019 cricket season by attending a four (4) day training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground & Academy.

 Shiplake College is an independent boarding and day school in Shiplake, by the River Thames just outside Henley-on-Thames, England. The school, with 480 pupils, welcomes boys from 11–18 and girls from 16–18.

The team training camp will comprise twelve (12) players all of whom will be spending their time completing numerous training sessions each day, accompanied by two (2) coaching staff.

Grass net practice, both bowling and batting, strength and conditioning work, running, speed, fielding and agility work will take place at the Cricket Academy. The culmination of the camp will see Shiplake College compete in a quadrangular T20 Tournament against Bedford School and Winchester and Radley College at the Desert Springs Cricket Ground on Thursday 18th, Friday 19th and Saturday 20th April.

Accommodation for the players and coaches is in some of the privately-owned apartments 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.
