Matt Prior hosts Cricket Masterclass at The Only Camps this summer
The Only Camps, leaders in offering expert-led sports camp coaching for 4-18-year-olds in Sussex, have today announced their full line-up of sporting legends who will be hosting their rugby, cricket, hockey and netball Superstar Masterclasses during the summer holidays.
The camps will all be held at the first-class facilities at Hurstpierpoint College, West Sussex, with the exception of the Rugby Superstar Masterclass which will be held again at Worthing Rugby Club.
Launched in December 2020, the Superstar Masterclasses deliver both a professional and enjoyable approach to development and a mixture of adaptive and closed-skill practice. The inaugural Rugby Masterclass, run by England rugby legend Chris Robshaw, was sold out and saw 130 young athletes personally coached by the star at Worthing Rugby Club. Danny Care hosted the Easter Masterclass and on 5 June 2021, The Only Camps welcomed a record number of young athletes to their most recent Rugby Superstar Masterclass, where 142 rugby players joined the Masterclass run by England and Harlequins stars Marcus Smith (who recently made his debut for the British and Irish Lions squad) and Alex Dombrandt.
The Only Camps director, ex-England and Harlequins rugby player, Jordan Turner-Hall, said: “We are excited to announce such a phenomenal line up of Superstars for our Masterclass schedule this summer holidays. Fresh from winning his second Premiership title, we are delighted to welcome Joe Marler back to host his first Superstar Masterclass with us and to welcome Matt, Lindsay and Tess to The Only Camps family. Our goal is always to ensure children continue to Learn From The Best, which they will certainly do this summer thanks to our fierce line-up of sporting legends.”
