Tailor-made hockey tours in Malaysia

Hockey is a very popular sport for both girls and boys in Malaysia. Since the Commonwealth games were hosted in Kuala Lumpur back in 1998 – the legacy left by the successful hosting of the hockey event and the facility that was left behind – really saw a boost in participant numbers. 

Malaysia has proven a popular choice in recent years with teams touring the country playing games in both Kuala Lumpur and Penang and enjoying all the cultural sights and sounds that Malaysia offers.  If you are looking for a real experience both on and off the pitch – a hockey tour to Malaysia fits the bill perfectly.

  • The tour answered many requirements of a sound tour - cultural, educational, moral, sporting. Many parents contacted me afterwards to say how impressed they were.
