Sale Sharks

A rugby tour to Sale Sharks

offers a very accessible tour from all parts of the UK with an easy coach transfer from most parts of the country. Steeped in culture and sporting heritage, a Rugby tour to Manchester can provide a truly memorable touring experience. It offers competitive games versus club sides with a range of standard and ability levels. Training facilities are of high quality with sessions being delivered by Sale Sharks community coaches at the first team complex at Carrington – the same pitches used by greats of the game like World Cup winner Faf de Klerk and England legend Manu Tuilagi.

Manchester is easily accessible from much of the UK. With a selection of hotel options in Manchester city centre, high quality sports facilities and a wide selection of excursions and leisure activities, Manchester has proven over the years to be one of our top UK destinations for sports tours.

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
