Beautiful beaches
Made easy with direct flights from UK
Various sports on offer


Barbados is one of the most popular islands within the West Indies and once you have been there, you will understand why. With its beautiful beaches, crystal clear sea, warm hospitality and many sports & activities to choose from, you can create your perfect sports tour here.

There are daily direct flights from the UK and plenty of accommodation options which cater for all budgets and age ranges.

The West Indies, without doubt, has been the home of some of the greatest cricketers of our time, with the most well known from Barbados being the great Sir Garfield Sobers. He has left a cricketing legacy on the island with the Sir Garfield Sobers International Schools Tournament which takes place every July. You will be sure to play very high quality cricket at this tournament.

Cricket isn’t the only sport played in Barbados though. Netball, hockey & rugby, volleyball & basketball are played at varying levels, by a wide range of ages, and you will be sure to find some great competition. Rugby is also played in Barbados, with the home of Barbados Rugby Football Union being found at the historic site of the Garrison Savannah – also famous for horse racing.

Overall, the tour to Barbados was a tremendous success. We just wanted to add our personal thanks for all you did in ensuring we had a tour to take the children on after we had to cancel Sri Lanka. That you were able to put things together in such a short time frame really was a reflection of the professionalism of LWTL as a sports tour company.
