WHAT IS We have four days lined up for you that promise to be the highlight of your student life. This includes professionally organised sports tournaments and activities with celebrity referees and officials by day and awesome parties in our exclusive bars and clubs with headline DJ’s by night.

The reputation

As the UK’s number one student tour and events specialist, we are the market leaders when it comes to entertaining, travelling and defining your experience at Uni. Over the years we have built up several events that we are incredibly proud of which has led us to win industry awards and to gain a very good

AU Presidents and Activities Coordinators

If you are the main co-ordinator of Sports Tours at your University we would love to meet you. Our ethos is all about support and guidance so please do get in touch. We are here to make sure your tour goes without a hitch and we offer everything you need to make the trip a success.

Individual teams

Societies and intramural teams

Are you part of a society, hall or course team and not in an inter-University league? Does your Society play sport? Well we are looking for you too! Unlike other Tours we welcome teams from any background. It’s all about the taking part after all. If you are part of a team that is not listed in the application section on the website feel free to call us on 0845 331 3040 for more information.

So you don’t get on with your Hockey team or you’re sick of the Rugby lads pulling all your Netball girls on a Wednesday night. If so, you can book your team or squad on to SportsVest individually rather than bringing multi- teams.

Groups of Spectators reputation within the world of travel, events, tours and festivals. This reputation and experience is what we bring to you on SportsVest. We won’t be getting your University on the front page of the tabloids or on national TV for all the wrong reasons. So when you choose us you are choosing a company with a rich heritage and a company that delivers on it’s promises.

So you’re not really that sporty. Can’t pull yourself out of bed in the morning to run round in the freezing cold? Well, to be honest, some people in our office know your pain. We welcome groups of “spectators” so come and support your Uni and show your team some support. You might get out of the sport side of things but we fully expect you to get involved in all the fun and shenanigans of Tour.

Barcelona day trip £15

Barcelona is a beautiful, bustling, ‘beachy’ city with culture oozing from the very brickwork which meanders La Rambla. The city sizzles all year round and has been on the cutting edge of architecture and culture since the great Gaudi lay down his hat. From the sun soaked tapas bars and sangria fuelled siesta’s to the must see landmarks such as the gothic Cathedral, SportsVest can not speak highly enough of this modern cosmopolitan city steeped in rich history. This excursion takes place on the free day off from sports on the Wednesday and leaves in the morning from Lloret to return in the early evening. This can be pre booked for your whole group or built into your package.

Snowbombing Now in its 12th year, Snowbombing has established a strong and loyal following. Combining a winter sports holiday with a week long music festival in the beautiful Austrian resort of Mayrhofen, days are spent skiing and snowboarding while nights deliver an eclectic and cutting-edge menagerie program of entertainment and music. Attracting sell-out audiences, Snowbombing maintains a very high level of interest from the media and music industry with shows on Channel 4 and MTV. Last year’s headline acts included; The Prodigy, Fat Boy Slim, Chase and Status, Pendulum, 2ManyDJs plus many more.

Beach Break Live Voted the number 1 boutique festival, Beach Break Live is the only solely student attended music festival in the Europe. With a line up that has included the likes of Tinie Tempah, Example, Professor Green, Katy B, Sub Focus, Zane Lowe, Mark Ronson, Magnetic Man and Dizzee Rascal, Beach Break Live combines incredible music with the end of the academic year. Having now solidified its place on the festival calendar, and wowing crowds which increase in capacity year-on-year (20,000 in 2011), Beach Break Live continues to go from strength to strength.

We understand that no two ski and snowboard clubs are the same; we listen to what you want and will come back to you with a package that will go far beyond the realms of the traditional University ski holiday. Our focus is on providing a tailored, unique holiday that is amazing value for money and has a mix of great mountains, entertainment, music and student friendly accommodation! As usual we throw in the mix of music that Outgoing are famous for; exclusive acts signed to Outgoing for season 2011/12 include: Chase & Status, Subfocus, Pendulum, Nero, Skream, Benga and more!
