Howzat! for some team building at the Old Trafford cricket ground

Companies searching for team building packages that have a sporting edge can now check out The Point, the events and corporate venue at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, as they may just have what you need to bowl your team over.

When you book one of The Point’s meeting facilities, be it the Red Rose suite or the refurbished pavilion, available from the summer of 2013, in either the morning or afternoon, you can spend 3 hours with the experienced coaching staff of Lancashire County Cricket Club, LCCC, in their indoor cricket centre.

Sales Manager for The Point, Peter Ash says: “Old Trafford is one of the most celebrated cricket grounds in the world and has hosted many memorable games. The cricket centre itself has been used by some of the world’s most famous players, including our very own Andrew ‘Freddie’ Flintoff.

Peter adds: “With the advent of our new Players and Media Centre facility, which will be used for the first time in September when England play South Africa, and our extensive range of meeting rooms, we believe Old Trafford is the perfect venue for the type of team building packages we have prepared.”

The package includes teas, coffee and a selection of mini pastries on arrival followed by a morning or afternoon break and lunch. The meeting room will include stationary and audio visual equipment with attendance throughout of a personal event manager.

Once in the Indoor Cricket Centre the action begins with a gentle a warm up and ice breaker. This is followed by practise batting, bowling, wicket keeping and fielding before a group game takes place. All this is supervised by the LCCC coaches who are fully English Cricket Board (ECB) trained.
