Tailor-made Basketball Tours in France

Basketball is a popular team sport. In France basketball is governed by FFBB (French Basketball Federation), which operates professional leagues for both men and women. 

The sport has overtaken rugby union in terms of licenced players, implying that basketball might have surpassed its popularity in France.

In just a short ferry or plane journey, you can immerse your team in a different culture, with the chance to practise your linguistic skills into the bargain.

Whether you've got your sights on Caen, Paris and Lille in the North, or Lyon, Marseille and Nice in the South, we can help you create a bespoke basketball tour in France to perfectly suit your requirements.

No matter what your team's age range or ability, we'll help you design a tour to meet your objectives.
