Sri Lanka – Rugby

A rugby tour to Sri Lanka

is an excellent long haul option! Second only to Japan, Sri Lanka is the second largest rugby playing nation in Asia. The sport is particularly strong at U18 and U16 level, so a tour for those age groups is something we’d certainly recommend! There are a handful of big schools, mainly in Colombo and Kandy that love taking on British opposition. Their rugby is fast and strong and the Sri Lankans should not be taken lightly!

The island is often discovered as a 3 centre tour but can be tailored to individual requirements. Visits to Colombo, Kandy and Hikkaduwa will give groups a fantastic blend of City, Hill and Beach life offering a well-balanced cultural and sporting experience.

A tour to Sri Lanka offers an amazing variety of attractions including a number of cultural sights, an abundance of wildlife, tropical rainforests and golden beaches. Groups will experience all this together combined with a tropical climate and warm hospitality of the locals with a passion for sport. Rugby is extremely popular in Sri Lanka with clubs and schools providing strong opposition.

A huge thank you to GB Sports Tours for organising our tour, I can’t recommend them highly enough as a first class tour company
