About our 18+ Hockey Tours...
Our Adult 18+ tours are an overseas holiday with a difference. You may on other tours get to do a coach tour around Europe, Africa, South or North America, and you will meet new people on your bus and see the sights, but do you really get to meet the locals (besides those who sit behind the hotel desks?) Well you certainly do on a Wanderers Tour!!!
Not only will you get to see all the sights of the destinations you travel to with us, but you will get to meet and chat and get to know the locals - because you will play hockey against them ! You will also meet great new friends in your team that all have a common interest - Hockey !
Players aged between 18 and 60+ are welcome to join us on tour, and we play against local clubs on tour in the countries we travel to. Players who play any grade of hockey, and veterans players are also most welcome also.
As with our junior tours, in most cases, the team is made up of individual players traveling alone on tour, so do not be put off touring if you do not know anyone, as everyone else is in the same situation !
On each tour, one mens team and one womens team travel together playing against local clubs along the way. Teams are matched up against teams of a similar level, depending on the mix of players that make our final team line up.
There are no tryouts or selections for our adults teams. Teams are filled on a first come first in basis. We usually take 14 ladies and 14 men who play, plus non players.
We also encourage those who do not play hockey to come along on tour, including non playing friends, partners, wives, husbands etc, as they too get to mix in with the locals and are just as much a part of the team as anyone else!
