Tailor-made School Sports Tours to

With its close proximity to the UK, a school sports tour to France offers a tempting sports package that’s easily reachable by coach or air. Perfect for girls’ and boys’ teams, as well as multi-sport tours, it’s an extremely affordable and accessible destination – ideal for any first time party leader.

Rugby and football are the country’s main sports and fixtures are readily available. Thanks to our ever-growing relationship with the British School of Paris, we can offer competitive netball fixtures with one of the longest established British international schools in the world.

Even more, working alongside our experienced French fixture agent means we have the knowledge to evenly match your sports team against local opposition on your school sports tour to France, as well as the ability to cater for basketball groups within Paris for even more multi-sport options.

Paris is one of our areas of expertise and one of our most popular short haul destinations. A fusion of artistic chic and traditional Parisian charm, it’s the perfect place to give your students a taste of French culture, history, cuisine, language and sport. Stay centrally or on the outskirts close to the exceptional training facilities, before heading to your fixture or the many sights of the city.
