Claverham Community College chose Sporta Tours to devise a football and netball tour. With a group of boys and girls aged 12 to 14 years they looked to Sporta for destination guidance.

We recommended Sri Lanka for its outstanding value and beauty, its safety and the country’s rich cultural heritage. As a sporting destination it also offers well-matched local opposition for football and netball and incredible hospitality.

Our tour focused in the south west of the island allowing the group a three-centre itinerary taking in Colombo, Kandy and Galle.

Via a series of fixtures, the pupils enjoyed friendly competition against several teams, including the Negombo Youth U15s, Nannapurawa College and Sri Lanka’s own Manchester Academy, plus the Ave Maria Convent, Wennappuwa Convent, St. Joseph’s Girls’ School and Devi Balika College.

“Just returned from an unforgettable netball and football tour to Sri Lanka. Everything about the tour was superb – the organisation (both in the UK and Sri Lanka), staff, accommodation, fixtures and food. We highly recommend Sporta Tours and are booking with them again.”

Just as valuable as the sport are the unique memories and experiences gathered off-pitch. At Sporta we create tailored itineraries and with extensive on-the-ground contacts and knowledge of the destinations we go to, are able to deliver well-suited excursions.

For Claverham Community College, a co-educational comprehensive in East Sussex, we incorporated a river-boat excursion and barbeque at sunset on arrival along with time at an elephant orphanage, a turtle hatchery and a visit to a tea factory. The school also attended a traditional ceremony at the Temple of the Sacred Tooth and explored Galle Fort, a Unesco World Heritage Site.

This tour featured direct flights, accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis with several meals included, a comprehensive programme of fixtures, training and excursions and accompanied ground transport. To find out more about multi-sport tours or Sri Lanka as a sporting destination contact
