Cricket tours to New Zealand

It’s a long way to go to take on the Black Cap potentials but certainly worth the air miles. The Kiwis’ famed hand-eye coordination, demonstrated over a wide berth of sports, creates fearsome opponents with both bat and ball and this is something you will experience first hand on one of our cricket tours to New Zealand.

Enjoy  a cricket tour during their summer season to prepare for a British campaign. Why not break the journey with a stopover in the Middle East to take on UAE counterparts as part of a twin country sports tour?

The hardest part is deciding what to leave out over the two contrasting Islands. The rugged South offers Christchurch, Dunedin and adrenaline­fuelled Queenstown whilst the geothermal north and balmier climate lists Wellington, Napier, Taupo, Rotorua and Auckland as its staples. Our advice: spend as long as you can there, cover both Islands by bus and make sure you add in a few nights’ billeting to sample the incredible hospitality afforded by the locals. Whatever you choose, our cricket tours to New Zealand are unforgettable experiences that create memories to last a lifetime.
