Your players will love a school preseason rugby tour to Bath, where the sport is a way of life. In fact, the city is home to one of the oldest rugby clubs in England.

The University of Bath boasts some of the best sporting facilities of any UK university, which were used as the Australian team’s base during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. And now your school rugby team are invited to take advantage of these to prepare for the season ahead.

On your school preseason rugby tour to Bath, you'll take part in training sessions and team bonding exercises, enjoy early morning swims in the 50m pool and rehabilitate in the hydro and ice recovery suite. By the time you return home, your team will be ready for anything the season can throw at them!

As a dad, I take great joy in hearing from other parents about how much their children loved our trips! – Dan Morley Sports Sales & Product Manager

Don't take our word for it …

We had used Halsbury for our previous tours and have always been impressed with the level of support and communication from Halsbury. We had everything we needed for the tours to run faultlessly. It feels like we are working together to really get the best out of the tour. You feel like partners more than customers. I would definitely recommend Halsbury! The support to the tour leaders is so good, and they are always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions. — The Forest School , July 2023
