The Somerset CCC training camp will comprise eighteen (18) players and six (6) 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. As they will be outside and on grass, the squad will also be able to do fielding and throwing practice in realistic conditions, something not possible indoors back in the UK.
The players and coaches will be accommodated in some of the privately owned Villas 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 El Torrente Restaurant.
Almanzora Group Sales & Marketing Manager, Simon Coaker remarked: –
"We are delighted to welcome the return of Somerset CCC for their annual pre-season winter training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Academy.”
Speaking of their inaugural visit to Desert Springs Cricket Academy in 2015, Somerset CCC Captain, Marcus Trescothick said: –
"It went brilliantly – I couldn't ask for more, it's great that you get the extra preparation time, so already you've had a week out on grass – then you're coming back here a week ahead of where you need to be."
