For teams that want to venture beyond our UK tournaments but are only looking for a short break or on a budget but still want that European flair and the opportunity to play foreign teams, then our France Day trips provide the answer.

Calais and Boulogne may only be a short journey away but they have numerous street cafés bars and restaurants and upmarket shops to choose from. There are a variety of hypermarkets and wine warehouses and the region has a number of tourist attractions including the fantastic Bagatelle Theme Park.

We have shown typical itineraries for the 1,2 or 3 day trips, but this is just a suggestion and we can vary the itinerary to suit your needs.

1 Day Tours

Board your coach from your local area for the journey to Folkestone/Dover in time to connect to the 09.00 hours Eurotunnel/ Ferry to Calais. Arrive in Calais at around 10.30 local time.

Your friendly fixture will not take place until around 14.00 hrs, leaving plenty of time to go shopping or have a relaxing meal - as the French are known for their cuisine - the choice is yours. After the match there will be time to get to know the local team over a drink or two at the clubhouse before reboarding the coach for the 19.00 hrs Eurotunnel/ferry and then home.

2 Day Tours

Much the same as the single day’s tour but after a comfortable nights sleep and breakfast you can depart for the excitement and thrills of Bagatelle Theme Park. It offers huge range of rides, amusements and attractions. Leave the park in time to connect with the 19.00 hrs Eurotunnel/Ferry.

3 Day Tours

Make use of the third day to either play an additional friendly fixture (subject to supplementary charge) or get to know the local area better. Return via the 19.00hrs Eurotunnel/Ferry.
