Over the past few years Cricket Espana has formed a cricketing partnership with Essex county cricket club, the main reason behind this was to try and find ways of introducing young people to play cricket in Spain using ideas from ECB.
Since that time Essex County Cricket club have visited Spain on a number of occasions visiting schools in Madrid Barcelona and on the coast in the Costa Blanca region, coaching Spanish students and teaching them the game of Street Cricket.
