Multi-Sport Tours to the Netherlands
Enjoy a variety of sports in close proximity
From the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam to the quaint town of Valkenswaard, a school sports tour to the Netherlands is sure to meet your team’s sporting, sightseeing and educational needs.
Football and hockey are played at a high level all over the country, whilst rugby is recognised through its dedicated grassroots programmes. We’re now seeing an abundance of clubs offering sides in age categories from U9s through to seniors, with girls’ rugby also booming amongst the larger clubs around the country.
We’re thrilled to see schools are as keen as ever to get back out on tour and we’re already helping school sports teams get their plans underway for later this year and 2022, so let us help you get planning too!
