Mini Rugby Tours

We are dedicated to providing a new age in Mini Rugby Tours.

From flying down a giant Zip Wire in the North Wales countryside to relaxing on the beach in South Wales. From competing in an end of season festival in South Yorkshire to playing a one-off friendly in London. From getting the young lads away on their first tour to thoroughly exceeding expectations on their next, we enthusiastically believe we have a superb Mini Rugby Tour package for every team.

We offer three contrasting types of tour, no two tours with us will be the same. Our options across Great Britain will satisfy those looking for wall to wall action & those looking to relax at the end of a long season. We also have an option ideal for those looking for an introduction to touring in our low-cost city based one-night tours.

We have been operating Mini Rugby Tours across GB since 2009. Year on year, we have developed, tweaked & added to our tours & we are delighted to present our range of exciting options in our brand new brochure.

Hi Richie

I am e-mailing you to thank you very much, on behalf of Portadown Panthers who have just returned from a most enjoyable and successful 3 day trip to Shropshire. Everyone involved, players, parents, family members, supporters, volunteers and coaches was extremely impressed by how well the tour was organised.

Your company deserves a huge amount of credit for its detailed planning. Nothing was overlooked from the moment the coach arrived in Chambers Park on Friday morning until it returned to Chambers Park on Sunday evening full of a very tired but extremely delighted and joyous group of Panthers!

As the main organiser within our club I  cannot compliment your company's role highly enough. You took away all of the concerns & functions that are normally associated with such a role. I basically had very little to do  from when we met until our return. 

In summary I would ask you, on behalf of Portadown Panthers, to pass on our sincere thanks to everyone involved for making our weekend such a memorable experience. It has been a great pleasure dealing with such a thoughtful, professional and supportive company. I especially want to thank you, Ritchie, for everything that you have done and especially for your understanding and support throughout the months of planning.

Kind regards

Willie Gribben
