Following the success of the 2019 Ladies Festival, La Manga CC will once again organise and host the 7th Ladies Cricket Festival involving both softball & hardball versions between 7th and 10th May 2020.
In 2020 La Manga are able to welcome 14 softball teams - the new pitches will be placed on the main football pitch which means the softball final will be played in front of the main stand where everyone from both the hard ball and the softball will be able to sit and watch.
The 3rd Rachael Heyhoe-Flint Trophy will be a 7 a Side event but with teams allowed to name a team of 8 and have a super-sub fielder. We will have both ovals available for this event in the morning and then continue on Pitch A in the afternoons when softball takes over on Pitch B.

You should book flights ideally into Murcia Airport - now known as Corvera with Airport Code RMU which is 35 minutes from La Manga Club Resort. Alternatively you can book Alicante which is 75 minutes away and commands a higher transfer fee. See attached form.
The package includes twin share apartment accommodation in Las Lomas Village with which you have access to the gym and spa (although treatments are not included)
Upgrades to the 5 Star Hotel are quoted on request.
The package is self catering. This keeps the price down and as apartments are fully equipped means teams are able to cook when they want.
Included is the presentation dinner on Saturday night. This is a great event with a welcome drink, 3 course hot buffet and wine and beer / water during the meal all included.
Also included is a basic lunch on the 2 match days - this is sandwiches, chips, salads, cakes, tea, squash served in SI Bar which is 3 mins walk from the pitches.
There are many bars and restaurants on La Manga Club and we will provide discounts or special offers in a number of these for evening entertainment.
Also, we will have our food shack open during the 2 days. This will serve hot breakfast baguettes, cakes, snacks, drinks (Hard and soft, hot & cold) to keep you sustained through the days.
The softball festival is a 6 a side event with teams playing across 4 softball pitches. We provide umpires, and an event manager from Cricket Spain plus we do ask teams that have a coach to join in and support where needed. Teams are asked to score own games if they have enough players.
The hardball festival will be a 7 a side event with teams allowed 8 players per game (Super sub rule applies). This is played for the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy. Rachael was our club ambassador
and a great friend to us as she had a property at La Manga for many years.
Rules and schedules are sent to all teams two weeks pre-event by the tournament referees.
