Netball Tours to New Zealand
Our netball tours to New Zealand are an exciting opportunity for you teammates.
You don’t have to look far in any town to see netball courts in the double figures. The commitment to the game is demonstrated by the national team’s international level consistency and the sheer number of clubs that are registered in The Land of the long White Cloud. Deciding on a netball tour to New Zealand will guarantee competitive games with the option of stopping over in the Middle East, Far East Australia to add a little sporting spice to the itinerary.
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.
