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.

The climate in Andalucía is perfect and there is a genuine passion for a wide variety of sports here. We know all the local clubs, schools and coaches and spend the time to ensure you have the right level and age group for your fixtures.

We can also provide high quality coaching in the sports listed below. Pitches are natural grass, 4G Astro, plus indoor and outdoor courts are available for both netball and basketball.

Football

Football is a passion in Spain and there are lots of local clubs and schools happy to welcome visiting teams. We hosted our own tournament at our local club Cortijillos over Easter 2019 featuring UK and local teams and are keen to run another in 2020. The standard of the clubs and schools is high, but they are so many options that we will be able to find the right fixture for your teams. The pitches here are generally 4G AstroTurf, however some clubs play on grass. The experience of playing against a different style of football is something that all our touring teams have really enjoyed.

We can also organise stadium visits to Malaga and Sevilla which are popular with touring teams.

Netball

Netball is a very popular sport in Gibraltar and there are many clubs based there. The main centre of Netball is at the Victoria stadium, close to the border so walking to fixtures is easy. The standard is high, and we offer matches against Gibraltar clubs and the local independent school Prior Park. The ability to offer Netball is a great reason to tour as the short haul tour options are limited. We often welcome multi-sport tours including Netball with mixed groups which work well.

Hockey

We can organise fixtures both locally in Algeciras and in Gibraltar. The facilities for hockey in Gibraltar are high standard and we have a good relationship with Gibraltar Hockey. They are enthusiastic about playing touring teams and have both male and female teams at all ages. They regularly host festivals and tournaments and are always looking for more teams to compete.

Basketball

Basketball is a major sport in Spain and is played by Spanish schools and clubs as well as our local international schools. We arrange fixtures both in Spain and Gibraltar as well as running training camps.

Working with Chus Mateo, the assistant coach of Real Madrid and the Spanish national team, we ran a training and talent spotting camp in the area that attracted players from all over Europe. We also have a top European club based in Malaga so watching high level basketball matches is also a good option during your tour.

Cricket

There are several teams playing on the Costa del Sol, taking advantage of our perfect climate for cricket. They are based at the Cartama Oval 15 minutes inland from Marbella featuring a high quality grass pitch and pavilion. The Costa del Sol cricket club fields teams at Senior and Junior levels.

Cricket has also traditionally been popular in Gibraltar and the game is thriving with male and female teams playing regularly in local and international competitions. All the cricket teams here are very keen to welcome touring teams.
