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, New Zealand’s fjord region and the Etosha Pan game reserve in Namibia.

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

In 2017 the Spring tour went to Barbados: the Quadrangular Tournament was at Sparta CC outside Rotterdam in Holland: there was a weekend trip to Luxembourg: there was a weekend trip to Lanzarote: there will be a winter tour to Dubai in December 2017 – and that’s all for the year!

The Spring 2018 tour is heading to Sri Lanka. The tour party will fly out on the 8th February, return on the 21st Feb, and is scheduled to play at venues in Jaffna, Kandy, Colombo and Galle. The party currently still has spaces if you want to join the party.

The Quadrangular Tournament 2018 is being held in July 2017 in Koge in Denmark. Tournament matches begin on the 23rd July and continue through the week until the 27th July

The Luxembourg experience will be repeated, hosted by the Forty Club, and be held this time at Margate in Kent over the weekend 18th / 19th August.  There is also the possibility of a weekend tour to Estonia !!
