A winter of cricket nets will hopefully have the boys prepared for some tough cricket when our 1st XI squad depart for Cape Town on 7th February. A group of 14 very excited boys are looking forward to experiencing cricket at a slightly more competitive level, where the tracks are harder and quicker and the challenges very different from playing on the wickets in England.
In addition to the cricket they will have the chance to meet a host of new “friends” and families as they are billeted with families for the duration of their stay in Cape Town. Cricket days will be followed by the boys taking in the numerous exciting sightseeing possibilities that Cape Town offers. The boys will visit a cheetah sanctuary, have an eagle encounter, scooter along down from Signal Hill at the foot of table mountain, visit a big cat sanctuary, experience a trip through a township and experience how a local company is working with the communities in order to uplift them, and finally they will jump into the water with some crocodiles.
Please be on the lookout for regular updates on our twitter feet @DPLSport.
