Manchester Thunder

A Netball tour to Manchester Thunder

Manchester Thunder are an established and successful netball team playing in the Netball Superleague. They were founder members of the League in 2005/06 and were champions in 2012, 2014 and 2019. You’ll have the opportunity to train to play the ‘Thunder Way’ with members of their coaching team, meet first team players and attend a Superleague fixture.

Manchester is a great location for your netball development tour with so many optional activities that can be packed into your itinerary to make sure you have a thoroughly enjoyable experience

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
