Forest School: Football tour to the Basque Country

Mark Gardner

Football Sports Tour to the Basque Country

Sports Tour Overview

Forest School joined us in the Basque Country to experience the very best of Spain’s footballing culture.

They began by learning the local sport of Pelota, the fastest ball sport in the world! With their reflexes sufficiently sharpened, they were ready to get down to training. Later they were able to see the pros in action at Eibar’s atmospheric ground against Real Sociedad.

After all the excitement it was time to chill on the beach on day 3 after a morning of training. Surf lessons in the afternoon were a great way to spend their time as thoughts turned to their competitive fixtures.

Over the following two days, both the 1st and 2nd teams took part in two great matches against local opposition before flying home.

If you want to experience top class football, competitive fixtures and warm weather training, why not contact us for more information.
