Coronavirus - Covid-19 Pandemic

Firstly and most importantly, we hope you are and your family are all safe and well and we wish you all the best over these difficult times.

In view of the well documented implications of the unprecedented worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, we want to reassure you that that the safety and well-being of all of our touring groups is very important to us and that we are closely monitoring advice from the Government, Foreign & Commonwealth Office and ABTA.

We have been dealing with the repatriation of clients stuck in Spain and are supporting our staff who are in self isolation.

Our office is now in full lockdown and we have very limited email access but those who are able to work are working around the clock to ensure that we can assist our customers with the most urgent needs and our goal is to ensure that anyone due to travel in the next seven days has been updated on their tour and given a list of options available to them, we will not however have the resources to enter into conversations over these options at this stage.

We will continue to contact tour organisers whose travel plans have been effected.

Best wishes at what is a difficult time for us all and thanks for your understanding,

The Burleigh Travel Team

Netball Tours to Barbados

Take your netball team on tour to paradise!

Netball Tours to Barbados

Barbados can be described in one simple word, paradise. This little island is located in the Eastern Caribbean, with white sandy beaches and emerald blue seas. Bathed in sunshine throughout the year, the average daytime temperature is 30°C. The Bajan way of life is very chilled and incredibly welcoming, with all teams that tour there commenting on how well hosted they were. This warm welcome and gorgeous climate, combined with the fantastic excursions and competitive fixtures, makes Barbados a wonderful destination for netball tours.

Barbados is just 21 miles by 14 miles, but don't let that fool you into thinking you will run out of things to do as it has some truly memorable excursions. Its lush golden beaches and clear blue sea offer relaxing days spent soaking up the sun or try some of the amazing experiences on offer like snorkelling, boat cruises or water based assault courses.

The Catamaran cruise is one of the most recommended excursions of any location we run tours too. A day spent seeing the island from the sea, you will enjoy music, food and snorkelling where you may even have the chance to swim with turtles. The Boatyard is another popular day out, with inflatable climbing walls and obstacles in the sea, and bars and restaurants on land, it has something for all ages.

Junior and School netball tours to Barbados

You will be based in the Holetown area on the West Coast. This was the first settlement on the island and was originally named Jamestown, after King James I of England. The name 'holetown' then came from the beaching and cleaning of ships in the small channel next to the village. It has now grown into a bustling community, with a number of beautiful sea view restaurants and bars to try.

Senior and University netball tours to Barbados

We base our senior teams in the St Lawrence Gap area where the majority of Barbados' bars are located. Renowned for its vibrant and fun atmosphere there is plenty here to keep your team entertained during the evenings. Two of our favourite bars are the The Jammin’ Bar & Cafe Sol. On Friday night a trip to the Oistins fish fry is a must! The fishing village of Oistins lays on a big street party with music, drink and countless stands grilling and frying swordfish, mahi-mahi, snapper and flying fish.

The Royal Engineers Netball Club Netball Tour To Barbados

Netball was introduced to Barbados in the 1940s and has grown massively since then to become the most popular women's sport on the island! There are now nearly 40 registered teams on the island spread across two leagues, and is played in every secondary school. These schools compete regularly in interschool competitions at U15s and U18s. This ensures that you will face some competitive netball fixtures during your tour.

While Barbados, and our other Caribbean destinations such as St Lucia, are hugely popular for netball tours we do have a wide range of European and long haul destinations on offer. Malta and Cyprus continue to be the most popular European options, while Canada and South Africa offers unforgettable experiences if you are looking for something a little more exotic.
