The Somerset CCC training camp will comprise twenty-two (22) 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, 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.


Almanzora Group Sales & Marketing Manager, Simon Coaker remarked: –


“We are delighted to welcome the return of Somerset CCC for their third annual pre-season winter training camp at the Desert Springs Cricket Academy.”

Speaking of their visit to Desert Springs Cricket Academy in 2016, Somerset CCC Director of Cricket, Matthew Maynard remarked: –


Extremely happy again with another great pre-season trip to Desert Springs. The service that we receive as a squad is just sensational and the wickets were prepared perfectly. Thank you to all the staff, look forward to seeing you again next year.”
