Sports fixtures and other activities/visits


Our visiting teams play against club sides in the nearby area of Barcelona. We try to arrange these games as close as possible to similar ability levels. Teams will receive two or three fixtures per team during the visit according to group requests. These games normally take place in late afternoon/early evening. Depending on the number of teams a group take we try to organise each age group fixture again the same club side and at the same venue. On occasion we sometimes have to split venues but this is usually if there are both boys and girls teams. It is essential that groups provide us with genuine ability level for each of their teams.

The clubs we use offer excellent facilities and high standards of pitches and grounds- many of which have their own bars and cafe. These include 3 G pitches and training facilities so appropriate footwear should be taken and worn. Groups are made very welcome and have a presentation before the game.


In Spain we are also able to offer Netball games on a variety of dates throughout the season. These are organised in the form of a tournament against other visiting teams.
