The Ashes is one of the most prestigious and iconic test cricket tournaments in the world, played by Australia and England twice a year. After the glorious match earlier this year when England achieved an outstanding 3-0 victory, it’s no surprise that many people have become huge fans of cricket.
Australia is to host the second Ashes test series of 2013, which begins on 21st of November and runs through to 7th January 2014. With Australia going home defeated, it goes without saying that they’re going to be more determined than ever to be crowned the winners.
The first test series, which was held at the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground, was a great opportunity for fans to demonstrate their support on home turf and the atmosphere was electric. The event has inspired cricket to follow their national team Down Under, to continue to offer their support and encouragement.
Getting your family involved can make the experience even more enjoyable and create happy memories; however, planning your trip can be a lot to organise. Finding a suitable hotel when you have children can sometimes give you a bit of a headache, as you don’t want accommodation too far away from the event. Why not consider organising your trip through The Cricket Tour Company? It offers hotel and ticket specials with added sightseeing tours to make sure you see the most of Australia, when you’re not watching the cricket.
To build up the excitement for the upcoming trip why not have fun by playing your own game of cricket? This a great way to involve the kids, and get them enthusiastic about cricket, you can pick up some great quality cricket equipment from companies such as Millet Sports at affordable prices.
Their Adidas cricket bats will have you looking and playing like a pro, but make sure you have some cricket pads to ensure yours and your children’s safety. Why not invite more of your friends and family to join in and make teams to get the fun times in full swing?
