Holidays - Sun, Sea and Sport

By: David Collins

For sports enthusiasts, packages that offer the chance to combine their sport with a holiday are very popular.

For some it can mean following a national team during an international tour, for others they provide the chance to partake in a favourite sport in a warm country.

Whether you're looking to watch your team in a tournament, play sport yourself or just take a leisurely cycle ride around picturesque locations, sporting holidays could be for you.

A variety of sporting holiday companies, such as Sport In Spain, offer you the chance to partake in your favourite sport whilst enjoying a holiday in the sun; with packages available for individuals and teams in a range of sports including golf, football, rugby and tennis.

Sporting holidays can also be very useful for team bonding and training. Usually run during the close season, team training excursions can help with development through use of facilities and experienced coaching staff.

After a hard day on the pitch, there is the chance to relax within the local area, and some locations even offer the chance for teams to play friendlies against local teams.

Many resorts offer state-of-the-art facilities such as gyms and swimming pools, as well as the chance to partake in a variety of sporting activities in much the same way as holiday parks. Some will offer coaching schemes as part of the trip, allowing you and your team the opportunity to gain more skills while having fun in the sun.

For those looking to use their sporting experience to help others, there are a range of companies that specialise in training camps and volunteer coaching schemes to help promote and develop sport around the world.

From rugby training camps in New Zealand to football projects in Africa, sporting holidays can be an exciting and rewarding experience for those who want to keep active during their holidays.
