Tours are a huge part of the life of Grace’s Cricket Club. As well as giving the opportunity to escape London and play or watch cricket in surroundings very different to those typically found there, they are fantastic social experiences which are often recalled in our conversation and banter all year round! Ever popular with players, many of our social members also make an extra-special effort to join our tours.
Amongst our touring destinations are Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire, Spain in 2001 and 2004, Torquay in 2002 and Brighton in 2003 and 2009.
In 2013 we had a marvellous weekend in deepest Devon playing in two lovely villages – Lustleigh and Bridestowe. We had 13 players and an equal number of partners and supporters who enjoyed a great long weekend away. 2014 saw a return to the same gorgeous part of the country.
For the 2015 tour we were closer to home – Brighton over the weekend of August 15/16th.
2016 saw a long weekend in Malta – breaking new ground for the club. The sun shone , the hosts were hospitable and the cricket competative. Overall a great time was had by all – perhaps a return trip in 2017?
Our 2017 tour destination has been arranged – it’s a new destination for us – La Manga in Spain
