Thursday 21st March to Monday 25th March
For this year’s pre-season tour we have decided that it makes sense to guarantee cricket by going to Lanzarote where we will be able to enjoy the good weather at an unpredictable time off the year having learnt from 3 previous UK Tours.
All cricket will be played at the Lanzarote Cricket Club based in Calle Rompimiento in Tias which is a 5 minute drive from the booked accommodation in Puerto Del Carmen.
Whilst the wicket is an artificial wicket it has been used as part of the 20/20 Annual tournament and many other games that get played throughout the year so is a realistic surface that can provide competitive cricket. Tea’s, balls, scorers, umpires will be provided as part of the package.
Format & Teams
The format for the 20/20 Tournament will be a group game on both the Friday & Saturday to determine standing within the 3 team group. Based on position in the group we will then play for either 1st, 3rd or 5th place in the finals on Sunday.
Other teams confirmed to be playing in the tournament are: Lanzarote Cricket Club, Woodford Wells & Birmingham Nomads
Other scheduled items to note:
Notes to be arranged around fixtures to allow additional practice
Thursday 19:30 – Welcome meeting for all teams and members
Saturday 19:30 – Sponsors Night with Spanish “Picoteo’ for all teams and members
Sunday 19:30 – Trophy Presentation Party and International Buffet
We are going to be located in Puerto Del Carmen which has the busiest of nightlife in Lanzarote so we will no doubt be kept plenty entertained in the evenings aswell as there being social events and drinks after each day of cricket with the other sides in the tournament.
We have booked accommodation at Apartamentos Hg Lomo Blanco to which you can see more details at the below link. This has very good ratings and also provides us with a nice environment for chilling out when not at the cricket. Other things included in the package:
- Airport Transfers on Arrival and Departure
- Pick up and drop off from ground on match days
- Storage of cricket gear at ground
