Durham – Hockey

A hockey pro-experience tour to Durham

Durham University Hockey Club Mens 1st XI are one of the top university hockey teams in the country. On a weekend, they play in England Hockey Premier Division and on a Wednesday they play in the BUCS Hockey Premier League.

The team play at an extremely high standard and have numerous individuals that currently play at an international level. This pro-experience includes coaching from players within this team as well as from their international standard coaches.

We have had a number of highly successful sports tours with GB Sports. I can’t recommend them highly enough from start to finish, always professional and efficient resulting in tours that run like clockwork
