Sports Holidays

What better thing is there on the planet than sports?  They get your heart racing, bring you together as a team and best of all, getting involved in sport is the best thing you can possibly do for your health and weight in most cases.  Because playing sport is so enjoyable, it can be a great idea to combine your love for getting active with a holiday!  This way, you get the best of both worlds and really do something fun while you’re away.  When it comes to sport holidays, you can either get involved as an excited spectator or as a participant.  Hey, it’s your holiday so play by your rules!  Here’s what you need to know to get started.

What to Expect from Sport Holidays

Expect to have a lot of fun more than anything else but remember that your sporting holiday will exhaust you as well so be sure to stay hydrated and get plenty of rest. If you’re going as a family, it’s best to play a team sport but extreme activities can be a great bonding experience for couples and friends, despite their risks. If you are looking for action and adventure without having to risk your own life, why not attend one of the major sporting events around the world like the rugby tri nations or even club games. There is always amazing support from the fans of sports like rugby, cricket and football! Here you can expect to be part of a crowd of jubilant people who know how to enjoy themselves with a drink and lots of face paint. This happens the world over.

Estimated Costs of Sport Holidays

The cost of your holiday will depend on the type of sports you decide to take part in. If you decide to go on a winter sport holiday, you will have just as much to enjoy and get involved in. In these instances, you can get a week long holiday for £1000 which will cover a basic ski and lift pass as well as your accommodation at a high end resort. Water sport can be just as exciting (and often a lot warmer too) so why not head out for a week of water sport in the tropics for £600. Of course, costs will vary depending on factors like accommodation, catering services, flights, activities etc. but these are fairly accurate figures.

Locations of Sport Holidays

If you wish to go travel abroad instead of holidaying in the UK, the world is literally your oyster. There are dozens of locations to choose from. Some of the best include:

  • Sunny South Africa – South Africa is a great destination for those who love adventure and outdoor travel because of the variety of natural elements and varying climates it has within itself. Try shark cage diving when you’re there.
  • Beautiful Brazil – Brazil is a soccer nation through and through. If you aren’t taking part, feel free to be a spectator at one of the regular club and national matches. Even watching the kids play on the street is entertainment!
  • Incredible India – India is home to some of the most well known and talented cricket sides in the world and the same can be said for players at a grass root level as well. If you love cricket, head to India and don’t forget to take in the rich culture while you’re there.
