A school hockey tour to India will allow your students to discover an ancient culture through the shared passion for hockey. This is a once-in-a-lifetime trip for your young hockey players, and one that they are certain never to forget.

There is still a real passion for hockey in India, so you’ll have plenty of good local opposition with which to challenge your team. They’ll have to adapt to different styles of play and much warmer conditions than they are used to, leaving them more flexible and confident.

As well as playing hockey, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see the sights of Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. You’ll see the iconic Taj Mahal, the spectacular Amber Fort and Qutub Minar, the tallest brick minaret in the world. You could even ride an elephant!
