Tailor-made School Sports Tours to
Abu Dhabi

A modern city of the future, Abu Dhabi is your gateway to world-famous cultural landmarks, spectacular sand dunes and fantastic opposition across all sports. 

On a school sports tour to Abu Dhabi you can dive head first into this forever-evolving metropolis and immerse yourself in its unique and vibrant culture, ticking off all the big-hitting attractions whilst experiencing that distinctive Arabian hospitality.

Take a leisurely stroll along the pretty promenade of the Corniche, with the city's skyscrapers behind you and the shimmering waters of the Arabian Gulf ahead. Visit the world-famous Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, a true architectural masterpiece that's as stunning as it is sacred. Then venture over to Yas Island and get your fill of adventure at Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld.

We have local school contacts ready to play your school in any UK sports, providing great opposition that will challenge your players and develop their skills in a whole new way. Even more, we've walked the streets ourselves, so we can talk you through the options of organising an unforgettable school sports tour to Abu Dhabi with competitive fixtures aplenty.
