The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
The Galle & Colombo School Cricket Tour is a memorable 10-day tour that will provide schoolboys a chance to play at some of Sri Lanka’s finest cricketing venues as well as a glimpse into the island’s ancient cultural heritage and lifestyle. We have also included a few days with the Foundation of Goodness for an enriching experience of interacting with a coastal community.
Red Dot cricket itineraries go through three simple stages: a Sample Itinerary (as below), which might meet your aims and aspirations for the most part and which can be adjusted as required; a Draft Itinerary, drawn up once an itinerary has been agreed upon in principle with all parties; and a Final Itinerary, which confirms your arrangements a few weeks before travel. Red Dot can also arrange for good quality tour cricket shirts and polo shirts for collection on your arrival.
All our tours are entirely flexible and can be tailored to your requirements. Our expertise in organizing Sri Lanka cricket tours over 15 years comes alongside the sort of sharp prices you would expect from a proven travel company based in Sri Lanka.
After your arrival at Colombo's international airport, transfer by coach to the cultural triangle and rest and recuperate after your flight. Day 2 is an educational day which offers a scramble to the summit of Mount Sigiriya before breakfast, all completed before the arrival of the tourist buses, and an exploration of the ruined city of Polonnuruwa. That should leave ample time for a swim before dusk and the chance to luxuriate in the sights and sounds of Sri Lanka.
Head to the capital city of Colombo for your next four days on this paradise island. A practice session will be arranged on Day 3 with the chance for some tuition by a respected Sri Lankan coach. You will have two games here. Spend your free time enjoying the sights and sounds of the island’s capital. Enjoy a final end of tour dinner at the Cricket Club Cafe.
MATCH 1 is at Murali's home club - Tamil Union CC, played at one of Colombo’s Test venues – the P. Saravanamuttu International Stadium. The ground is renowned for its large balcony dressing room and reaper-clad scoreboard.
MATCH 2 is on the ground of a top Sri Lankan college. Cricket is a passion in Sri Lanka's leading schools and the visit of touring sides is always regarded as a thrill.
Kassapa Lions Rock named after the legend that surrounds the magnificent Sigiriya Rock Fortress, is a peaceful holiday retreat with 51 individual chalets scattered over 10 acres of landscaped gardens in the heart of the Cultural Triangle.
