With the domestic cricket season drawing ever closer, both Sussex and Somerset County Cricket Club playing squads will be stepping up their preparations for the 2015 campaign by completing their warm weather training at the Desert Springs Cricket Academy from between 23rd February – 4th March and 4th – 12th March respectively.

Sussex CCC will comprise eight players and four coaches and Somerset CCC twenty-one players and five 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.
A spokesman for Desert Springs said:
"We've been supporters of English cricket for a long time, and 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.
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 the food 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."
