The Forty Club Tours

Over the years, many members have experienced the thrill of playing at Test grounds around the world.

Where in the world? Here you’ll find news of our tours – past and present!

Over the years, many members have experienced the thrill of playing at Test grounds around the world and they and their wives and partners have enjoyed visits to some incredible places, including the Taj Mahal, Sydney’s Opera House, the Masai Mara game Park in Kenya, the Iguazu Falls in South America and New Zealand’s fjord region.

XL tours have been to Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, Japan, India, Sri Lanka, Namibia, Italy, Malta, the West Indies, Argentina and Chile to name a few!

 

The Quadrangular Tournament 2016 is being held in October 2016 in La Manga, Spain, and so this takes the place of an autumn tour. Tournament matches begin on the 16th October and continue through the week until the 22nd October. Already the list of XL players going to Spain has closed but there may still be places for anyone wishing to travel as a spectator: contact Ron Hart on ronhart@tiscali.co.uk 

The spring 2017 tour is heading to Barbados. The tour party will fly out on the 6th February, return on the 20th Feb, and is scheduled to play 8 fixtures at Windward, Four Square Oval, North Stars, Desmond Haynes Oval, Wanderers, Isolation, Conrad Hunt’s ground and The Lodge School. The party currently contains 14 playing and 12 non-playing members: so there is still a space or two if you want to join the party.

In July 2017 the Quadrangular Tournament is scheduled to be hosted by SGS Holland.

The autumn 2017 tour will be heading to Namibia. Negotiation and forward planning is still in progress but it promises to be a fantastic tour.
