Tailor-made netball tours in Singapore

 

Singapore is an intoxicating fusion of East meets West and a wonderful introduction to Asia.  Netball is a played in the International, Private and State schools with regular competitions being held throughout the year.  Popularity of the game was boosted as Singapore hosted the World Netball Championships in July 2011 with Singapore beating Malaysia into 15th place.   

 

There is plenty to do off the court too, experience the sights and smells of a food hawker centre, go on the world’s first night safari, have a Singapore Sling at the famous Raffles Hotel or the newly opened Universal Studios on Sentosa Island.

 

The competitive fixtures combined with the varied blend of sightseeing will ensure that any netball team will have a unforgettable tour experience.
