Yorkshire & Humberside Spain for Sport Tour 2017

On 8th April 26 players and 4 staff representing the Rowse Academy will arrive in Spain for a 7 day pre-season training camp. 

Led by Andy Rowsell, the group consists of an Under 13 and an Under 17 squad, all selected from within the Yorkshire & Humberside region.

The group will be hosted by Spain For Sport / FTI Sports Tours (who specialise in arranging sports tours, events and training camps across Spain) and will spend 7 days at Desert Springs Resort utilising the first class cricket academy, where, throughout the week they will be undertaking net practice, middle practice and fielding drills.

During the week, there are also fixtures arranged for the Under 17’s against Winchester College and Radley College who are also visiting the resort and both the Under 13’s and Under 17’s will be playing fixtures against the Spanish Academy squads. 

During down time, the group will be enjoying a visit to the beach and also within the gym and activity centre based within the Sierra Sports Club facility on site.

Desert Springs Resort, Europe’s only international award-winning luxury family resort and championship desert golf course with its very own dedicated Cricket Academy based in the Almanzora region of Almeria, Andalucía in south-east Spain is, without exception, the warmest and driest place to be in Europe in the winter.

The Cricket Academy features 24 grass nets, a practice area with middle strip for drills and fielding and all of the equipment and features expected within a first class facility.

Accommodation is based within luxury apartments, townhouses and villas and with first rate catering for sports groups and an excellent customer friendly environment this is why Desert Springs Resort has been the home to professional counties, universities, schools and academies over the last 4 years.
