South Africa Cricket Tour
Bedford Prep School cricketers jetted away over the half term holiday for an exciting ten-day tour of South Africa, and what an experience it turned out to be for the 26 boys aged 11 to 13.
Cricket was, of course, at the forefront of the trip, and the boys played some great cricket to win nine of their ten games, including fantastic wins against Paarl Boys and Curro Durbanville. They also enjoyed a superb day of four T20 matches at Sunningdale CC, which was well supported by a host of Old Bedfordians in the crowd.
The boys also gained a real taste of South African culture, as well as a wealth of new friends, as they enjoyed being hosted by local families for four of the nights.
During the action-packed tour, the boys also found time to cuddle (!) crocodiles and pythons, check out rhinos, cheetahs and lions on an amazing game drive as well as ostriches, monkeys and a wealth of underwater wildlife, hit the beach and the pool, sight-see at Table Mountain, visit the Springbok Rugby Museum, eat some great food (including the best burgers (EVER!)) and, of course, watch Cape Cobras play cricket. They were extremely busy!Published: February 28 2018
