We received a first class welcome on our tour with great hospitality including an authentically prepared Paella in a super location. We felt very safe in terms of safety provisions laid on by our hosts with full medical support laid on in case of accidents. We stayed quite close by in Estepona in a fully equipped Hotel and our group of 20 teenagers entertained themselves with a full array of activities. I would have no hesitation recommending this to any Rugby Club thinking of taking a touring party to Club del Estrecho.
Our tour in February 2020 was absolutely amazing. We took a large group to the region and Guy looked after us brilliantly from the moment we landed. Every aspect of the tour was excellently organised and communicated to us. Guy had sorted out every detail for us which made the trip so much more enjoyable for everyone and stress free for me :-) The hotel we stayed in was great, the hospitality shown by the opposing teams was lovely and every single member of the Tour had a great time. I could not recommend these guys highly enough.
Touring Andalusia in 2017 with Rugbytourspain, Stoke-on-Trent RUFC U14s enjoyed two fantastic playing opportunities. The match against a Gibraltar Select XV was played at the Victoria Stadium. Located impressively next to the airport and in the shadow of the Rock, the stadium is often seen on TV as it hosts international football, athletics and rugby. Hospitality followed at a clubhouse on the rock with all players enjoying the setting and experience of performing at an international ground. The second and third matches took place at Holmes Sotogrande Rugby del Estrecho. Here the team got to play in a three-way tournament against the hosts from Estrecho, and a Marbella Select XV. All of the matches were evenly-contested and well-officiated, allowing for all of the touring squad to enjoy plenty of tough, exciting rugby. The generous hosts provided excellent hospitality at their purpose-built ground, giving the team a memorable send-off to the short tour of the region. The quality of rugby, level of sportsmanship, warmth of the hospitality and support from Rugytourspain made for a memorable first touring experience for all the team.
We toured with Rugby Tour Spain in 2019 as a youth rugby team. Everything we requested was accommodated by Adrian, especially the quality of the opposition he put together for us. Nothing was too much trouble, and the boys, coaching team and parents had an experience that they’ll never forget. I would recommend using these guys to anyone wanting an awesome tour in a great part of the world!
Having been a Head of PE and Director of Sport at several schools over the years, as well as a senior club coach, Rugbytourspain remains my 'go to' provider. The quality of experience and attention to detail is second to none, as is the level of care and the importance they give to the safety and well-being of the players. I have experienced a number of tours with 'bigger' names in the field of rugby tours, but none come close to Rugbytourspain.

Rugby Tour Spain is a company dedicated to organising rugby tours to and from Andalucía. Our staff are all players or coaches with experience playing rugby at a high level in many countries including the UK and Spain. We are based in Sotogrande on the Costa del Sol, the southernmost part of Europe, and enjoy fantastic weather surrounded by great beaches and, most importantly, plenty of rugby clubs keen to welcome touring teams to the region.

The area boasts many rugby clubs who field teams at all levels and ages from Minis to Vets. All the clubs compete in the Andalucian provincial league and there are several 15s and 7s tournaments throughout the year. Andalucía is also home to a fast growing and hugely popular beach rugby circuit which is played from the end of July through to early September.

We totally understand how important the touring experience is and how enjoyable it can be when run professionally.

Working with clubs, schools and universities, our unique local knowledge enables us to put together bespoke tour packages to suit your requirements. We will help you throughout the planning process and we will be here on the ground to meet and greet you and ensure that you have a stress free, memorable tour.

To date, we have hosted many touring groups including:

  • Wasps RFC
  • Northampton Saints
  • Gloucester Rugby
  • Cwmbran RFC
  • Chepstow RFC
  • Old Penarthians RFC
  • Earlsdon RFC

In addition to all the local rugby clubs we also run our own invitational select team called, “Los Pirates”, drawn from players throughout the province of Andalucia, which enables us to field teams at a very competitive level when required. We take great care to match the standard of the teams playing, to make each fixture as competitive and enjoyable as possible for all teams.

Rugby Tour Spain arranges fixtures in Sotogrande, Algeciras, El Puerto de Santa Maria, Jerez, Marbella, Malaga and Seville. The clubs based in these areas are all keen to host touring teams and offer great hospitality during the famous “tercer tiempo”.

Rugby is played in Andalucia from September to the end of May, however we also organise pre-season tours and the beach rugby tournaments which run throughout July, August and September. The beach rugby circuit takes place on some of the best beaches in Spain including our favourites, Tarifa, Puerto Santa Maria and Cadiz.
