Clubs and School cricket tours to Argentina
The first time cricket was practiced in the country was during the British invasions of the Río de la Plata in 1806 and 1807. It is believed that the first cricket match was played in San Antonio de Areco by a group of British prisoners that had been caught by the Criollos revolutionaries.
Now Uk Cricket teams from Clubs and Schools are visiting Argentina for something a little more unusual than the tried and tested cricketing nations have to offer. Hospitality is second to none here and the variety of excursions available on non cricket days will ensure an interesting and exciting trip to South America.
Here is what Mike Gatting had to say:
I would have no hesitation in recommending club cricket tours to Argentina. The cricket infrastructure is sound, well-run and interestingly the main nucleus of cricketers are locals rather than the ex-pat community. The Hurlingham Club has a wonderful ground, complete with grass tennis courts and excellent golf course, one of many throughout Buenos Aires….. and then there’s the restaurants, invariably excellent red wine and the best steaks in the world.”
The Argentine teams play mostly in regional tournaments throughout Latin America, which may not provide the fiercest opposition, but certainly offer a good level of competition for the development of players. The country competes in the ICC trophy, the Americas Championship and the World Cricket League.Copyright © 2019
