Desert Springs 2021
In 2019 we decided to take a senior squad from Ockbrook & Borrowash CC to a facility in Spain called Desert Springs.
It is an ideal place for a pre season camp and has some wonderful facilities to allow our group to prepare for the new season approaching.
I made the decision to visit again in April 2020 but learnt from the previous trip and the workloads for the group. With this in mind I decided to open up the chance to experience this facility to a talented group of Under 12 cricketers whom I coach 121 through the year as we had the facilities at our disposal all day and the seniors were only using them for half a day.
Unfortunately due to the Global Pandemic the 2020 trip was postponed to 10th April 2021 and the group of Senior players and now Under 13 players is all ready to go .....
Under 13 Players
The senior squad of players will play one T20 game and one 50 overs game in preparation for the new season, as well as using the grass nets and fielding facilities.
The Under 13 group will use the grass nets, bowling machines and this trip have the opportunity to play games against visiting opposition.
