Rugby Tours to Sri Lanka

Our rugby tours to Sri Lanka have so much to offer. Play competitively against the locals and enhance your skills against a different style and technique. Between tournament matches, R&R on a tropical sandy beach, tour a wildlife safari, visit an elephant park and more. There aren’t many places on earth to travel on a sports tour that rival Sri Lanka’s beauty, friendliness, safety, charm and ­ most of all ­ variety. This stunning country takes you from city to countryside, remote wilderness and glorious beach resort in one adventurous itinerary, mixing unique sightseeing with your tour fixtures.

It surprises many when hearing that Sri Lanka sits in the top 6 global nations for the most registered rugby players. It also surprises many coaches who underestimate the level of schools rugby in the country, especially in the private schools of Colombo where a competitive league exists. Many recognised rugby names have been taken to the wire by the locals who lack nothing in physical terms or indeed pace. The hard tracks inside impressive school stadiums make this a running rugby zone and one that should be respected.

With volunteer projects operating at the end of the tour in the each region of Senigamma, your students will have the opportunity of giving something back to the community through skills coaching, basic teaching, building projects or general conservation, enhancing their learning outside the classroom experience.
