The Sussex CCC training camp will comprise eight (8) players and four (4) coaches, all of whom will be spending their time completing numerous training sessions each day, which will include 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 do more fielding and throwing practice in realistic conditions, something not possible indoors back in the UK.

Between 20th – 23rd March the whole squad, comprising Twenty Three (23) players and Five (5) coaches will then return to Desert Springs for a specific 3-day team bonding break in the run up to the start of the season.

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


"We are delighted to welcome the return of Sussex CCC for what is now to be their third consecutive year of winter training at the Desert Springs Cricket Academy.

Since the addition to the existing cricket facilities in 2013 of six top quality grass wickets at the Cricket Academy we have hosted numerous cricket teams, both professional and amateur, as well as university and school groups, which has now led to the introduction of a further 13 grass wickets to cater for the growing demand of those wishing to visit.

The feedback received from those visiting groups that can be viewed Here has further confirmed the quality of the training facilities and service we provide.

Combined with the Resort accommodation used to house the players and officials with meals provided at El Torrente restaurant and our unique winter climate, it is clear to see why Desert Springs is fast becoming renowned as the perfect one-stop-shop for Cricket teams to come and train."
