Hockey Tours


Hockey touring can be a short sharp pre-season build up or a lengthier long- haul tour. Whatever your side’s standard or budget, we tailor the tour to fit with your requirements and touring needs.

The majority of the shorter pre-season hockey tours take place during the October half- term with Holland, Germany and Spain being the most popular destinations. The long- haul tours head off to more far flung climes during the summer holidays such as Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.

Hockey is the most popular girls’ sport along with netball, so it is not uncommon to combine a girls’ hockey tour with a boys’ rugby tour during the summer holidays as both sports will start their seasons on return in September.



David and the team at Living with the Lions organised an amazing tour to Dublin. Their communication, planning and helpfulness prior and during the tour was top notch. I will definitely be using them again in the near future. Thanks again for everything.
Clifton College Hockey tour to Ireland
Carrie this was an excellent trip and I would like to thank you on behalf of the school and the 82 people that travelled for creating a busy, challenging, adventurous and life changing experience. I could not fault the level of care and attention that had been exercised to make the trip successful and I have no doubt that it will have enriched the lives of the students who were fortunate enough to be tour. Thank you- a perfect way for me to sign off.

Cathedral School, Football, Rugby, Netball & Hockey tour to Belfast
Once again LWTL provided us with an outstanding tour at a great price. It included everything we requested, such as billeting and a wide range of excursions. The big advantage is that they really know our school and tailor our tour accordingly, keeping us up to date every step of the way. The ease of booking and dealing with only 1 or 2 individuals makes it an easy decision to book with LWTL.
