There is no doubt that one of the most pleasurable activities in school is represented by sports, along with any other outdoor activity.
That’s why school sports tours are a win-win situation for children. They get to compete, develop and expand their skills, play their favourite sport, and visit a new destination at the same time.Cricket tours offer teams the opportunity to explore exotic destinations whilst playing competitive matches and, in the meantime, learning how the cricket game is played differently across the world. The perfect choice for school sports tour destination is the cricket tours to Barbados, ideal for teams seeking sandy beaches, a chance to experience the Caribbean culture, and top sporting facilities. Barbados is also a great option for any sports tours and many schools choose to combine sports. From the east coast to the fine sand that lines the western shore, amazing colonial bridges and realistic Nelson statues in Bridgetown to the fishing areas of the north and crumbling plantation, Barbados represents a fascinating and enthralling Caribbean destination. Steeped in tales of English colonialism and piracy, doused in rum and flavours, and set to the delicious fish fries, Barbados makes its home in the gorgeous Lesser Antilles chain. There, it is able to attract SCUBA divers with its reefs, sunbathers with the amazing southern beaches, history buffs with the soaring forts and amazing UNESCO sites, surfers with the world-known rollers of Bathsheba Bay, food-lovers with spiced swordfish – and many other attractions.
