Proposed Preseason Tour
Updated: Feb 20, 2019
Thank you to Pete White who has ben looking into a proposed preseason cricket tour, The preferred option is to visit Sir William Hoste cricket club (https://www.viscricket.com/) on the island of Vis off the coast of Croatia. The standard isn't particularly high but they're a good mixture of locals and expats. They currently have availability for the weekend of the 26th April.
The proposal is, flying into Split on Friday, get the ferry across to the island and spend Friday and Saturday night on Vis. Sunday afternoon we would get the ferry back to Split, stay in Split Sunday night and then fly back to the UK on the Monday. This would mean two games of cricket (Saturday and Sunday).
Flights - Currently £180 return (direct flights to Split are available from the UK. Obviously the cost will go up the closer we get to the time)
Hotel Vis - Approximately £50 (twin room per person for 2 nights)
Hotel Split - Approximately £50 (twin room per person for 1 night)
Ferry - £15 return (slightly more if we want to get the quicker catermaran)
Taxi to and from airport - £35 per taxi each way or alternatively the bus is £5 per person each way
Cricket package - £110 per person (includes 2 x games of cricket, transport to and from the ground on match days, lunch including beer x 2, tour dinner including beer and wine)
This comes to approximately £440 per person
Things that are on top of this are travel to UK airports, evening meals on Friday and Sunday nights and beer. As time is short if you would like to go on the tour please reply to the club secretary to register your interest, clearly we need at least 11 people who would like to go.
