About the tour

Bear Cricket U18 School / College T20 Invitational

We are delighted to announce we have been given the rights to run the U18 school / college T20 invitational at Desert Springs. The facilties are constructed to ECB standards and specifications regularly hosting county and international squads pre season tours allowing you to experience the exact same level of facilities and wickets they do.

The tournament will consist of 4 teams competing in a round robin format thus guaranteeing each team will play a minimum of three T20 games of white ball cricket on the internationally recognised cricket oval. When you are not playing you will get chance to train hard in the ICC approved grass net facilities and training pitch including an artificial wicket to hone in your skills in order to get yourselves ready for the upcoming season.

The elite performance strength and conditioning centre can be made available throughout the week (surchage may apply) for athletes to continue their winter strength programmes. There are also steam room and sauna facilities available to help with your recovery after a days play, you can also get a discount on any spa treatments & sports massages you may need throughout the week.

Finally as you are booked on to the Further Education T20 Invitational you get a discount to play on the top of the range golf course, perfect if you are playing in the morning game to then spend the afternoon having a round with your team mates.

On the last evening a BBQ can be arranged for all the participating teams in the competition which will give everyone a chance to get to know one another, which is what playing the game of cricket is all about!
