inspiresport Cricket Tour 2019

Exeter School recently came back from a fantastic cricket tour to Dubai over the Autumn half-term, organised by inspiresport. We had an action-packed itinerary over 6 days, which included 5 cricket matches and some unforgettable sightseeing. Some of our matches were played under lights and we had the opportunity to play a variety of formats. Our excursion highlights included a tour to the top of the Burj Khalifa [world’s tallest building] and a breath-taking desert safari with dinner at the Bedounin Campsite. Added to that, we stayed in a fantastic hotel in the heart of Dubai. Tour Captain, James Horler adds, “The cricket was a fantastic experience, 5 games in searing heat and under floodlights was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Playing on amazing grounds with backdrops you would never get in the UK made the cricket 10 times better and to play great cricket against some good quality sides topped it off. Aside from the cricket, a trip to Wild Wadi waterpark was extremely enjoyable, especially cooling off from the heat!”
