Sporting Alfas win seventh national cricket title at La Manga

La Manga is home to some of the best sports facilities in Spain and this week the five-star resort played host to the final of the Cricket Espana National League, which saw Sporting Alfas romp to victory, picking up their seventh national title.

Sporting Alfas beat rivals Madrid Cricket Club by 64 runs. With just 27 boundaries being hit throughout the afternoon, the match was hard work for the batsmen at La Manga, and Madrid finished at 175 all out against Sporting Alfas' 239-5.

Speaking to the Costa Blanca and Costa Calida Leader newspaper last month, Tony Coles, the general manager of La Manga club explained how cricket was an important part of the sporting scene at the five-star resort, which is often better known for its golf and tennisholidays.

Mr Coles said: "Cricket in various forms has taken place over many years with county sides playing here in the 1980s, but just over two years ago we formed a partnership with the local Spanish side and this is now their home ground."

La Manga Club enjoys global fame as one of the finest sports resorts on earth and, as well as being the venue for a number of important finals in the sporting calendar, many teams choose the five-star complex for pre-season training or tournament preparation each year.
