2002 Pre-season supporters' tour to South Africa

Once again, Gloucestershire will be travelling to sunny South Africa for our pre-season training. As before we will be based in the beautiful Cape Province and playing against some of the country's best cricketers.

We will also be taking on some other UK county teams in the Boland Festival, which is held at the stunning Paarl Stadium. These one-day matches will be played both during the day and as day/night fixtures, allowing you to savour the real South African atmosphere.

You will be based in cosmopolitan Cape Town, the beautiful old town of Stellenbosch and Paarl, making this a trip of a lifetime. For those interested in food and wine, this is the heart of the Cape Winelands and with the current exchange rate; you are in for a wonderful time.

A cocktail party with the players and a Winelands Tour have been arranged to give you the perfect escape from the English Winter. Other optional tours and holiday extensions are also available.

We hope you can join us in the build up to the 2002 season. For more information please call Mike or Cheryl on 01908 609722 or visit www.capetours.co.uk
