Tailor-made School Sports Tours to
Sri Lanka

Renowned for its stunning, natural beauty, friendly people and their passion for sports, a school sports tour to Sri Lanka offers a truly unique experience.

As true cricket-lovers, it’s near impossible to walk 500m on any evening or weekend without witnessing or becoming involved in a game of cricket! Any space is used for an impromptu game, with locals regularly invited for a bowl or bat (although we advise the former!).

We’ve run a number of school sports tours to Sri Lanka and feel the knowledge we’ve gained is invaluable. Ultimately, we know the best places to send your sports team! What’s more, with rugby on the rise, a number of private schools are now competing in structured summer leagues, which means quality opposition and fantastic facilities are guaranteed.

With plenty of opportunities to arrange fixtures involving football, rugby, hockey, basketball and netball, this is the perfect long haul, all-round-sport option. Stay in multiple resorts to experience the whole of Sri Lanka and give something back by volunteering in areas still affected by the 2004 tsunami making your school sports tour to Sri Lanka even more memorable and fulfilling.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are you responsible for?

    The DfE’s guidance for safe travel highlights the need for all those involved with the organisation and running of a tour to work together as a team. This is our aim at Rayburn Tours, to work together with our party leaders to ensure our groups' safety and peace of mind.

  • What should be included in my risk assessment?

    Start by identifying the potential hazards before deciding on the appropriate precautions to minimize the potential risk for your group. Once identified, record your findings and implement the precautions. Specific requirements are available from your Local Authority.
  • Do your hotels comply with our Local Authority’s guidelines?

    All hotels are audited to standards set by the School Travel Forum (STF), this criteria is based on information and guidance from educational authorities. Whilst local laws and standards have to be taken into consideration, as they may differ from country to country, our standards do not. We are happy to provide copies of our hotel audits should you wish to see them.
  • Can I talk to Rayburn Tours whilst out on tour?

    Yes, a 24-hour emergency phone number will be provided in your final documents pack and one of our experienced members of staff will be happy to help with any problems you have whilst out on tour.
