Gullivers Sports Travel has long recognised the vital role in personal development that sport fulfils within the UK Armed Forces – be it a Recognised or an Approved activity. Over the last 40 years, we have arranged tours in the major team sports of rugby, football, cricket, hockey, netball and volleyball. More recently, our support has extended to more diverse disciplines such as judo, martial arts, orienteering, tug of war and waveriding – thereby demonstrating our flexibility and our innate knowledge of the emerging needs of military teams.
In 2011 – as a more tangible sign of our support of Services’ sport, and in conjunction with the Combined Services Sports Board – we launched our Gullivers Services Sports Tours Fund which assists service personnel in meeting their tour costs (criteria apply). In 2015 we have been proud to be the Lead Sponsor of the IST20 Tournament at Lords, and we continue to seek opportunities to enhance our commitment across the military sporting spectrum.
Gullivers has travel partners all over the World – so no destination is ‘off limits’ to us! Our provision for Military clients ranges from a comprehensive package (flights, accommodation, ground transportation and arrangement of fixtures) to a flights-only arrangement – or somewhere in between. Consequently, we can tailor our packages to complement whatever Host Nation Support a particular tour enjoys. When it comes to arranging flights, Gullivers can delay issue of tickets until very close to departure, thereby allowing far greater flexibility on name changes (due to military exigencies etc) than available elsewhere.
We have a senior ex-Serviceman on our staff who managed a myriad of both single Service and Combined Services tours during his career – so he is well-versed in the ‘mechanics’ of military sports tours, and is best-placed to advise and assist tour managers from the outset. All our touring options are available for military sports tours, so take a look at all our destination and sporting options to create your perfect sports tour. Don’t hesitate to call Peter Hodcroft if you are considering a sports tour of any description!
Whatever your requirements, we look forward to hearing from you!
